Francine Street is best known for her realistic style. She is inspired by a broad range of sources for her creativity. What remains constant is her enjoyment from drawing detailed wildlife images and the challenges of drawing or painting figurative works from life.
Francine has been drawing for as long as she can remember. Growing up in a rural community on Vancouver Island, her childhood was spent outdoors surrounded by the forest and the Salish Sea. More recently, travel and the resulting experiences in different landscapes and cultures, have greatly influenced her. She has traveled to South East Asia, Europe, India, Middle East and South America.
Francine has participated in a number of group shows and in 2017 she had her first solo exhibit at The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre, in Qualicum Beach.
She is a Resident Artist at The Old Schoolhouse Arts Centre and has an Active Membership status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. She also organizes life drawing sessions locally, teaches and is Vice President of the Decosmos Fine Arts Society.
