Who we are


Award-winning independent public art consultancy, working with artists to create public realm art across the UK.

Louise & Laura

Both Louise and Laura hold a passion for the arts and bring individual interests and strengths to the business. They attribute their success to a shared desire for a good work-life balance, and not taking themselves too seriously!

Founder Directors Louise and Laura first established a professional partnership whilst job-sharing as local authority arts officers. Having developed a close working relationship curating a varied visual arts and education programme, they set up FrancisKnight to pursue their own projects together. FrancisKnight want to continue collaborating with diverse artists and specialists, bringing new inspiration to clients and communities and sharing experience through their ever-growing public art portfolio
