Artist Bio

John Francis

John Francis is a watercolour impressionist painter but also an abstract painter from Sierra Leone. My inspiration for painting emanates from the old sierra leonean masters. I like painting pre’ colonial architectures most especially the ones related with the Creoles. Portraying Suerra Leone’s history through painting is some thing I have developed passion for since the early stages of my artistic career and this could be reflected in most of my watetcolour paintings.
