Francys’ paintings have a unique style, elegance, and technique. She blends realism with impressionism, uses bright colors, and creates soft edges. Her glazing technique was first developed by the old masters. She is a well-known demonstrator and workshop instructor in the North Texas area.
“Words, strung like pearls on a page paint a picture. Music tells the soul a story. Colours and shapes on a canvas make the heart sing. Three doors into a magical and lovely place that God’s gift, imagination, allows us to enter. As a child I strolled at will through these doors and lived in that place. As I “grew up”, I never left it.
In 1977 God gave me another gift in the person of artist Dick Turner. Dick gave a fortunate few the tools needed in order to use paint and canvas to take others into that world of beauty and peace. A world that might catch at your imagination and cause you to ask, “What if…..”
From the time I was a small girl I knew I would be an artist. I just didn’t know what kind. I read book after book about painters, musicians, dancers, and writers. Then in 1977, through the chance meeting with artist Dick Turner, I knew that I too would be a painter.
I immersed myself, soul and body, in that pursuit. I studied with Dick from 1977 until 1982, taking 5 and 6 classes a week at his private art school in Houston. I have also received instruction from William Reese, William Henry Earle, Carolyn Anderson, Greg Kreutz, Roberta Carter Clark, Ray Vinella, Jean Chambers, Scott Burdick and Daniel Greene.
I also teach in my home studio and am available for club demonstrations in the Dallas metroplex area.
