My name is Francine Henderson. I am a full-time artist and oil painting instructor living and working in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I have been painting and teaching for many years. I never get tired of playing with my brushes and paints and seeing what the end result will be.
I have had the privilege of studying with many wonderful artists. Pet portraits, flowers, landscapes, seascapes, and birds are all so much fun to paint. I love all the colors and textures of nature. Many of my seascapes have been inspired by my friend Joyce Ortner.
I have generously been given permission by many wonderful photographers to use their photos for my paintings. Mike Helechu, Bill Nagy, J. Nan and Robert Gebbie, are just a few of the wonderful photographers who have allowed me to use their photos. I am grateful to all of them.
Some of the original oil paintings are for sale on my other website. Please visit www.FrancineHendersonArt.com.
