Frances has previously worked collaboratively with Allison Wade, a Chicago community artist. She has also collaborated with outside organizations through the 20 Neighborhoods Project, including WomanMade Gallery and the Center on Halsted. She has an interest in poetry and jazz. In her free time she likes to rest, watch Court TV, cook, do laundry, go shopping and out to restaurants.
