Fran Carter

Fran Carter was born in in Wellington 1984 and has a history of designing which stems back to childhood memories of making outfits for herself and her Barbie’s from old pantyhose an aunt would send her.
It was with a desire to keep scratching the itch of wanting to make and learn new skills that Fran left her work in Early Childhood Education & Care to take up studies at Whitireia NZ in 2012. In 2014 she graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts majoring in contemporary jewellery.
In 2015 she was the recipient of the Whitireia Toi Pōneke Artist in Residence award and she completed her Graduate Diploma in Applied Art.
