Francesca Campbell Hulick ~ Oil Paint
“Growing up, I was creating artwork on everything from illustrating school reports, to embroidering friends’ jeans, to painting murals on entrance walls of office buildings”.
Francesca Campbell Hulick was born in Texas, spending most of her childhood on her grandparent’s ranch in Paris, and likes to joke that she grew up in France. She received a BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas in Austin. After graduating, she went away from her creativity for quite awhile, experiencing life and adventure.
Francesca traveled extensively ~ Scotland, New Zealand, Tahiti, western and eastern Europe, Ecuador, Africa, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii . . . and enjoyed a diverse background of achievements ~ firefighter, EMS ambulance crew member, mountain search & rescue, ski instructor, veterinary assistant/technician, hiking & biking tour guide, video store owner, travel website publisher. Throughout the years, her love of painting has never left her and she is enthusiastic to share her view of this colourful world. Francesca’s artwork is inspired by animals, flowers, landscapes . . . the immensity and mystery of nature. She works in oils, using bold colors and texturing to convey an impressionist sense to her work. Francesca lived in the Rocky Mountains of Montana and Colorado before moving to the Pacific Northwest with her husband and four-legged kids.
