My Name is Francine Dufour Jones
I am an artist, art teacher, and creative inspirer. I love so many forms of painting, including oil painting, alcohol inks, acrylics, digital, pastels, watercolor, silk painting, and, of course, mixed media. Living in Alaska, I enjoy Plein Air painting in the spring through fall months. I love to be inclusive of both different kinds of artists and art mediums. Experimenting to see how various mediums play well with each other is fun and important to my development as an artist. On this site, I will share my art, experience, ideas and dreams. I hope that these art classes will bring out your creative spirit and your desire to explore and create. Through creative exploration, you will gain more confidence as an artist. I hope my art brings a smile to your heart.
