This piece was inspired by "Dolores Claiborne", one of my favorite Stephen King stories. When I began painting the deep greens and multi-layering the browns and reds and pinks, an idea came to my mind about what it would be like to find yourself at the bottom of a well. I added many more layers, imagining that the light reaching down into a well would seem different and eerie - especially right after a solar eclipse.

Frances Jemini grew up watching her graphic-artist mother create art out of paper, cardboard, fabric, oil paints - you name it - and has thus tended towards artistic interests her whole life. It led her to study architecture at Virginia Tech, which is where she began creating acrylics and mixed-media artwork. Her style has been described as expressionist abstract centering mainly on the use of bold colors and deep textures and reflects her strong architectural background. Currently residing in Athens, Georgia Frances has also been greatly influenced by the local artist scene and enjoys incorporating avant-garde materials into her work. Her multimedia designs and artwork consist of found materials including cardboard, sheet vinyl, plastic, old credit cards, string and junkyard metal.
