Fran & Judy is inspired by powerful matriarchs and decorative arts. 

Kim, the granddaughter of Fran and daughter of Judy, is the artist behind the original hand-stitched felt embroidered designs and digital drawings.

Fran and Judy taught Kim the basics of embroidery and encouraged her creative pursuits as a young girl growing up in rural Northern Michigan. Studying Art History in college led Kim to become fascinated by painted and carved floral designs. 

Kim creates one-of-a-kind hand embroidered felt wall hangings and two dimensional digital drawings embellished with hand drawn representations of her favorite embroidery stitches like the lazy daisy stitch, blanket stitch, and french knots. 

When she is not creating, she spends time outdoors hiking or cross country skiing with her husband, Kyle, and pups, Ruby & Leo.
