Bold, Sexy Knife Work – Franoise Nielly: Paris

Are these paintings hot or what? Franoise Nielly doesn't rely on modern technology in her art, she simply needs oil and a palette knife. I love how she emphasizes her subjects with fluorescent colors and how the cut of her knife is so incisive.

Franoise grew up in South of France where she lived between Cannes and Saint-Tropez. According to her bio, she is a passionate woman who loves life, wide open spaces, sushi, blue lagoons, the Internet, humor, books, Paris, New york and Vancouver. She currently lives and paints in Paris near Montmartre.
