France Daffon Is Just Getting Started

  • by The Cartellino Team

France Daffon is a videographer that's passionate about screenwriting. Concurrently, she explores abstract art and portraiture. The themes of her work orbit around the fluidity of femininity and intimacy of human connection. Her degree in Film has influenced the way her works are composed, mid-movement.

Ultimately, she aspires to, later on, contribute to funding research for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and represent the diverse women of the LGBT+ community through art and film. 

France is part of an ongoing exhibition with Albe Art Gallery, Open Minded.
