Francoise Viglietti was born in Cape Town South Africa in 1967.She is a figurative artist , who has a fascination with the ever changing forms of light and colour and how they collide in an ever changing spectacle within nature.
Her work is a contemporary expression of a spiritual and emotional journey, amalgamated within oil paint.
Painting is not only a form of creativity to her, it
is a meditation. Her work is energetic, high frequency and colourful.
Francoise has combined her love of travel through Africa with her painting. The greatest body of her work consists of studies on traditional African tribal culture.
Her work is a contemporary take on the ancient law of fragmented colours and spiritual ideas juxta positioned within the here and now.
She has studied art at the Frank Jouber Art School, Then matriculated in1985 from Paarl art School later studied at the Ruth Prowse Art School both in Cape Town South Africa.She has completed various courses in “Impressionism” By Reino Swart andSheri Hornsey
