Sevitt Francis Born in 1942 in Dublin, Ireland, painter Sevitt Francis has traveled the world, moving from one school and life experience to another. In 1959 the young artist found her home in Israel. During the seventies, she studied at the famed Avni Institute in Tea-Aviv and the school for art teachers in Ramat-Hasharon. Her studies were concluded at the Israel Artist s Association in 1981. My recollections says Francis, are of a time when the pace was slower, living altogether more gracious, and people gentler. This nostalgia for a kinder gentler world is reflected in Francis marvelous lyrical canvases. Her subjects are predominately women, not associated with any particular time or place (although Renaissance and Moorish influences are evident), writing alone or reading in groups of two mounting golden staircases, holding bouquets of lilies, or meditating near a vase of roses by a open window. The artist s studies of life and ambiance long gone are filled with gentle passion and sensuality. Through intricate details and rich, lustrous, yet somehow muted colors, each canvas conveys a personal imagination that suffuses everything it beholds - and represents - with quiet magic. Sevitt Francis work has been the feature of many exhibitions throughout Europe, Israel, Canada, and the United States.
