Francis says, "I have chosen to work with themes and subjects that are familiar to me. I am a well traveled and well educated American. While my work naturally springs from the most available visual resources I also attempt to integrate concepts and images that have been passed down from us from a variety of cultural sources. These concepts and images are part of our collective human heritage and are a shared part of the twenty-first century experience. It is the integration of these collective ideas, along with the use of first - hand regional idioms, and personal environmental references that makes my work American. I believe that experiences can be shared, emotions expressed and understood, and that these communications offer us insights into the human condition and increase both our tolerance and our appreciation of our fellow humans."
