About Karen Francis

Currently working on posters for new feature film, Christmas Ride. Click into the picture in this widget that you are interested in to learn more:


Born in Memphis, TN and graduated from Rhodes College, I lived in McLean, VA for many years after a brief stint teaching at the University of Georgia in Athens. I took art classes at the Corcoran School of Art in DC, the Art League School in Alexandria, VA, The New York Art Students League, and George Mason Univ. in VA. I currently live in the Memphis area and exhibit art here and online. I seek to create harmonious images and often find inspiration from travels. My paintings and prints are in numerous collections. Details of my art journey may be found at Art Promotions website www.artpro.com. I paint primarily in oil and explore digital art expressions and I thank God for my many blessings.

Please send me an email at kfrancis427@gmail.com to let me know of my work ordered from this site or to arrange for purchase of originals. Fine Art America is the authorized publisher of prints of my work. Their watermark saying 'Fine Art America' that appears across the lower right on some images on this site will NOT appear on the completed prints which are created when you order through the online shopping cart. Click on the images to see price and frame options. These prints are each custom printed only as an order comes in. Each print carries a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee.

If you click in the Blog tab, you will learn of any current special promotions. Subscribe to the blog feed with your email. It's free and then you will be notified of future time limited offers. The Galleries tab shows my art organized by subjects, price, and decade of creation. Videos of my art are on youtube.com at the channel blessings427. My art resume list of exhibitions is at http://www.artpro.com/resume.html If you have any questions, please email me.

Thank you for visiting. --Karen Francis
