A FAMILY OF PAINTERS
Dorothy Francis: 1923 – 2016
The matriarch of the Francis painters, Dorothy instilled a love of art in her sons at an early age.
For most of her career Dorothy’s art has been centered round Canada’s Inuit and First Nations people. The sensitivity shown for her subjects has resulted in her artwork being both, collected around the world, and being widely published through limited and open edition prints as well as art cards.
Tim Francis: 1949 –
Tim has been involved with art from as early as he can remember. He completed the Applied Arts program in college before working in the newspaper industry as an Art and Advertising executive.
As well as being an accomplished painter, Tim’s drumming skills have kept him busy driving the beat behind various working rock/funk/blues bands over the years.
Now living in Kamloops, BC, Tim produces vivid landscapes of the area.
Mark Francis: 1956 –
The youngest of the Francis family, Mark first worked as a Commercial Display Artist, painting Fantasy Art in his spare time. Later he took his talents to the Props side of the movie industry where he has been able to apply his creative skills on a regular basis. Several of Mark’s works have been published as limited edition prints, all of which have since sold out.
Living in North Vancouver, BC, Mark continues to paint while working in the movie business.
