"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....."
Francys has known from the time she was a small girl that she would be an artist; she just didn't know what kind. She read book after book about painters, musicians, dancers, and writers. Then in 1977, through the chance meeting with artist Dick Turner, she realized that she too would be a painter.
Immersing herself, soul and body, in that pursuit, she studied with Dick from 1977 until 1982, taking 5 and 6 classes a week at his private art school in Houston. She has also studied with William Reese, William Henry Earle, Carolyn Anderson, Greg Kreutz, Roberta Carter Clark, Ray Vinella, Jean Chambers, Scott Burdick and Daniel Greene.
Francys is currently represented by Artisan Collective Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and ART on the Square, Waxahachie, TX.
