Anneli Di Francis works as an artist in Seinäjoki, Finland. After studying ceramics in the College of Arts and Crafts in Tervola, she searched deeper expression for her work in Norway under the guidance of Kari Bugge-Gjerstad.
Known for her unique world, where triangle headed people in sculptures will meet twisted humour in paintings. Her works have been in several exhibitions around the world.
“In my paintings I prefer circulated canvases, which I'll stretch and prime myself. Vintage tablecloths and towels give each a unique structure for the surface by giving three dimensional contrast to the two dimensional medium.”
Women are all over paintings... Well, I think men are as picturesque.. and mystery.. I do, however, have more in my mind.
