Born in Montreal, Canada, Francine Blake majored in Classical Studies at college and studied Fine Art at l Ecole des Beaux Arts de Montreal. She has always sought knowledge, and spent twenty years studying ancient wisdom in a school of self-development brought to the West in 1917 by George Gurdjieff.
Introduced to crop circles in 1987, Francine was immediately attracted to them, recognizing many of the symbols she had been studying. She joined the Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS) in 1991, and in 1992 moved to Wiltshire with her family to be closer to the phenomenon. In 1995, she started the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group (WCCSG), where she was elected coordinator, a post she still occupies.
She edits The Spiral, the monthly newsletter for the WCCSG, and designs and produces an annual Crop Circle Calendar. She lectures extensively and has given many interviews on radio and television. She lives in the Pewsey Vale near Alton Barnes the most active area for crop circles in the world (and lots of megaliths) where she studies the phenomenon full time.
