I paint primarily in oil, explore digital art through video and film creation and new mobile apps. An American artist, born in Memphis, TN, I've exhibited my paintings in brick & mortar galleries in five states, Washington DC, as well as China and India, plus numerous other venues and benefits. I seek to create harmonious images expressing love of life and find inspiration in travel, having visited twenty countries, and forty-six states in the U.S.
While partially self taught through studying the works at the great art museums of the world and reading books, I've also taken art classes at the Art Students League of New York, the Torpedo Factory in Virginia, George Mason University, the Corcoran Art Museum Open Program, and others. My art resume, though not updated recently, is online at karenefrancis.com/Resume.html Big thanks to my collectors.
If interested in my original paintings, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to purchase. Fine Art America is the authorized publisher of prints of my work and I have 200+ works uploaded here. Their watermark saying 'Fine Art America' that appears across the lower right on most images on this site will NOT appear on the completed prints created. Everything from towels, to mobile phone covers, mugs to T-shirts, can be ordered with art images imprinted on it. I find the spiral notebooks, tote bags, blankets, mugs to be useful. The artist holds the copyright on these works, even after purchase. All images are copyright to the artist and may not be reproduced, copied, edited, published, transmitted or downloaded in any way. All rights are reserved. Copying, altering, displaying or redistribution of any of these images without written permission from me, Karen E. Francis is strictly prohibited.

The feature film Christmas Ride,'A Road Trip to Remember!' which I scripted and produced, became an Academy Award Qualified film in 2015. It is rated PG, and available now in a DCP or DCI version for theaters with shipment by day and date from an experienced California movie distribution company. Cinemas interested in booking it may call or text 901 859-2316 or write email@example.com at my company, Art Promotions. I produced the film with cooperation by Yarbrough Media Productions.
