Description

Dorothy Francis (1923 - ) born in Saskatchewan is a listed Canadian artist living on British Columbia's Vancouver Island. A childhood passion for drawing and painting developed into a full time career as an artist, whose work is now in demand throughout the world. Her early childhood days were spent near Duck Lake in northern Saskatchewan where there was a local Cree population that would visit her father's general store.

Depicting Canada's aboriginal peoples, particularly the Inuit of the far north, developed into a life-long passion for Francis, resulting in more than 500 images rendered in acrylic, pastel, watercolour and oil.

Francis moved to North Vancouver in 1952, where she attended the Vancouver Art School. She works mostly with acrylics on canvas or hardboard, using many washes to achieve the brilliant colour which characterizes her paintings. She is best known for her portraits of the Inuit people, whom she has studied extensively, to ensure that details in dress and artifacts are correct.

Her compositions radiate a light-hearted happiness and often feature children. In 1993, Francis was awarded the Commemorative Medal for 125th Anniversary of Canadian Federation, and in 1998 her support of the Arts and the Qualicum Beach community was recognised with the re-naming of the 'Mini Gallery' at The Old School House Gallery to the 'Dorothy Francis Gallery'.

This painting is called "The Young Fisherman": "During the spring months in the Arctic Ekaluk fishes through a hole in the ice. The fish he catches will help feed his mother, father and small sister"
- Dorothy Francis
