Growing up in the South of France, Francoise Nielly found her first inspirations in the surrounding natural beauty of the Cannes and Saint-Tropez with their colorful, diverse, and live atmosphere. Her father, an architect, was her first teacher, who presented the mysterious yet amazing and luring world of art and images to the small girl. Since her early childhood, Francoise was fond of faces, which attracted her much and motivated to paint. With the inherited art vision and painting talent, Francoise could not help choosing the career of a painter, a designer, a photographer, or simply “an image maker” as she positions herself. After her success in advertising business, about 12 years ago Francoise decided to devote herself exclusively to oil painting. With over 500 completed works and exhibitions around the world, Francoise promises even more to come…

She loves life, architecture, blue lagoons, Internet, open spaces, chocolate at night, love, Paris, and much more… Faces are the special attraction and passion of the artist. Human faces often work like triggers for her, launching the imagination and the process of producing art. Raised in the atmosphere of the Mediterranean Sea cost, Francoise has a subtle perception of deep colors, strong contrasts, and intense light, which are so clearly reflected in her paintings.


Francoise Nielly is a well-established artist with mature painting technique. In order to create her masterpieces, Francoise uses mainly knives and oil paints. Working on portraits, she usually takes black-and-white photos of her models, which are later used as the references for paintings. She never draws preliminary sketches with a pencil, just a few general outlines to create some fixed reference points. Francoise works with very thick layers of oil paint, thus most of her masterpieces are formed with multiple layers, put on the canvas one by one by a skillful hand of the artist with no chance for a mistake. Francoise Nielly loves colors and contrasts. That is why her paintings contain the entire palette of colors and shades. Sometimes, she chooses one particular color, such as yellow or orange, to dominate on the painting.


To date, Francoise Nielly completed about 500 paintings. Most of her works are portraits with close attention to faces and unique ultimately intense way of expressing human sensitivity and passion. Her expressive way of painting is enforced with the dimensions of the canvases, which often reach 55-78 inches in size.

After trying myself in multiple spheres, I have decided that the bigger part of my soul clearly votes for the humanitarian sciences and art. Thus, following the call of my soul and mind I received the University education and now I am fully involved in multiple web activities.
