Biography from Debbie Leeuw Fine Art:
Fran Ellisor has been painting the landscape professionally for almost twenty years.  She  spends much of her time painting outdoors on location and working from life. She strives for a style of painterly realism; confident yet spontaneous brush strokes and for clean and fresh colors.  Her subjects are figures, portrait and still lifes.  

Her subjects come from her life and surroundings.  She has carried her paintbox from Alaska to Mexico and Guatemala, across the United States and to Spain, France, Italy and Greece.  She includes these areas from around the world in her works.  

It's not unusual to find this Impressionist painter along one of Texas backroads or creeks, painting what she sees, expressing what she loves.  The Texas landscape plays an important role in her paintings including the Hill Country, desert mountains of West Texas, and from the piney woods of East Texas to the lush tropical seaside of the Gulf Coastal areas.  You'll likely see her painting anywhere she finds beauty and interesting subjects.

Fran Ellisor paints interchangeably on location outdoors, "en plein air", or from life. Her still lifes are "alla prima", meaning they are painted from life in one session.  The remainder are studio paintings, which are painted from studies done on location and from photos, drawings and other information.


Painting is the way I communicate and express how I feel about the subject matter.  I want the viewer to not only see what I am seeing, but  also share my emotional response to the subject.  My brushes and paints are the tools through which I speak: without them, I am silent.  

Art is the expression of emotion that is shared by all who view it.  The great societies, cultures and civilizations throughout time have recognized and invested in art to reflect the beauty and complexity of life itself.  

Painting from life, capturing the light and feel of a specific location, interpreting the world in a way that will inspire others is my reward.  Each day I paint fills me with great pleasure and joy and makes me look forward to the following day, so that I can paint again.
