Full Artist Bio

Francie Davis is an award winning, Delaware based Nature/Landscape Photographer and is known for her spectacular sunsets and stunning reflections. She is an avid lover of nature and holds a deep respect for all God’s creatures, great and small. She considers her photographic journey an ongoing love affair with the beauty and wonder of Mother Nature.

“I find myself drawn to the beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis, whether photographing the large, bright eyes of one of my several kitty cats, or the awesome rays of the fading sun as it peeks through the evening clouds. My love of all things beautiful keeps me constantly challenging myself to learn more ways to capture this amazing world we live in.”
