Francine Lecoultre is a mixed media artist: painter, sculptor, and print maker.
Born in the French speaking Switzerland, she graduated in Art Education at the University of Bern, and received her diploma in Costume Design from the Advanced Program of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.
Lecoultre’s creations are often inspired by nature and travels. They have a special, textured, organic, and tactile quality, with multiple layers. She favors techniques built in superposition with care and precision, such as silk screening, molding, printmaking and paper art.
Francine’s interest in process and patina is evident in her collection of prints and sculptural pieces. She goes near obsessive lengths to recreate the effects of time and wear. She has created numerous unique pieces and art commissions exhibited around the world.
