Painter Sevitt Francis was born in 1942 in Dublin, Ireland. After having traveled all over the world, moving from one school to another, she made her home in Israel in 1959. During the seventies, she studied at the famed Anvi Institute in Tel Aviv, the School of Art Teachers in Ramat-Hasharon, and finished her studies at the Israel Artist's Association in 1984.


"My recollections", says Francis, "are of a time when the pace was slower, living together was altogether more gracious, and people gentler." This nostalgia for a kinder, gentler world is reflected in Francis' marvelous lyrical canvases and works in oil. aquarelle, and acrylic. Using Renaissance and Moorish influences, she is able to capture intricate detail, rich and lustrous, yet somehow muted colors, that in a way allows each canvas to sing of an imagination that suffuses everything it beholds and represents with quiet magic. Her paintings, which are predominently of women in serene settings, have been included in one-woman shows and exhibitions throught the world.
