Frances Russell Allen is interested in the intersection between installation, textiles, and drawing. Originally from Dallas, TX, she pursued her studies of fibers and art history at Savannah College of Art and Design. At times, her work uses the idea of cellular communities, anthropomorphic piles of dirt and seed, and scenes of the everyday to communicate the transformation of a home or an individual’s ever-changing environment. Frances has helped artists such as Lesley Dill, Nene Humphrey, Jason Hackenwerth, and Jason Middlebrook create and install their own personal shows. When she is not teaching high school art at Trinity Christian Academy, she spends her time with her husband, Zach, and two daughters, Evelyn and June.
