a mama & dreamer rooted in Oakland / Huichin Ohlone Territory
“Ritual is a tribute to the human capacity to create, remember, and imagine, and to apply that imagination for the benefit of the community.”
-Malidoma Patrice Somé
Ever since she can remember Francis has created art to connect with herself, her ancestors and the spirits that guide her. Her watercolor, pen and ink and acrylic illustrations honor Black and Brown Indigenous magic, Divine femininity, the earth, and other dreamers and warriors throughout time and space.
Recently she has expanded her creative spiritual practice through ceremonial tattooing. She currently apprentices under Sal 'Chamuco' Cortez at the very special gallery and tattoo shop Amor Eterno Arte in east Oakland. The intention behind her work always is to serve and inspire the people, creating art as tools for healing and liberation.
*Francis is always booking commissions and speaking engagements. Please feel free to contact for all business inquiries, firstname.lastname@example.org, and sign up for the newsletter below. Blessings!
