Mally Francis FLS

Mally lives in an enviable location for a botanical artist at the centre of the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall adjacent to her studio where she has been holding regular weekly and short residential courses since 2000. In that year she became the Founder Chairman of the Eden Project Florilegium Society based upon the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society of which she was already a Fellow. Mally was elected as a Fellow of the Linnaean Society in 2012 in recognition of forming the Eden Project Florilegium Society.

Mally had the good fortune to be taught first in the late 1980s by Anne-Marie Evans FLS and she still follows her principals.  Away from her studio she also tutors botanical art at the Eden Project, the Bath Society, the South West Society,  Ventnor on the Isle of Wight, Truro Arts, Boconnoc House and Trengwainton Gardens in Cornwall. Mally teaches artists ranging from complete beginners through to advanced levels and two have been awarded Gold Medals in recent years by the RHS.  

Mally has organised a number of exhibitions in Cornwall for her art groups, the most recent commemorated the Heligan gardeners who died in the First World War by showing the flowers, vegetables and animal life with which they would have been familiar. She has also had her own work shown nationally and internationally.

She was commissioned by Heligan to produce the illustrations for the books Heligan Wild and Heligan Days.
