Artist Statement

When viewers see my work, I hope they sense a love of the natural environment, desert, mountains, ocean, the vast sky, even the cosmos. I paint spontaneously, trying to capture fluid motion and energy. On both medium and large formats, I like to use bold acrylic colors to create dynamic patterns which seem to erupt from the canvas with volcanic force. In some of my mixed media work, I place color over prepared layers of different substances or I incorporate pieces of natural rock and stone to achieve heavily textured surfaces.
In addition to showing my work in galleries throughout California, I do commissions and collaborations with interior designers and architects.

Guestbook for The Art of Francine Markoe
Wow... You have got a great talent, Francine. It took me some time to believe that these were just paintings and not some computer generated artworks. The perfection, patterns and the color combinations were just outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi there, I check your new stuff like every week. Your humoristic style is awesome, keep doing what you're doing!

Wow! Spectacular, Francine!

These paintings have a wonderful Chinese landscape look to them, the same sort of feel of imposing natural forms...like Sung Dynasty 10th and 11th century paintings I love so much. And you have done so many. I can't wait to see them in the "live".

Thanks for putting us onto these.

So nice to see your work, Francine. You are clever. Something about you...eludes me like a butterfly--beautifully.
