About the Artist:
Francis Salvesen has loved painting since childhood, winning the Art Cup at school in Edinburgh. He used to leave the latch of the art room windows open and nip back during his free time to spend hours continuing the paintings he was working on! There were few formal lessons in how to draw or paint, so what you see is a rare example of a self-taught artist.
Throughout his life, Francis has surrounding himself with portraits of his friends and enjoyed painting large and detailed pictures as gifts. For the last few years this painting activity has been frenetic, from dawn till dusk. Other business and intellectual activities have been squeezed into the canvas-stretched day!
Francis is one of those unusual artists who is good at both arts and sciences, playing the piano by ear, composing poetry, writing letters and even a published book, and at the same time a ‘Masters standard’ expert on business and a graduate of Economics and International Relations.
He was the 'ideas man' who created a mobile smartphone 'blackberry killer'; innovating and persevering in the development of two windfarms; presenting projects all over the world on mobile banking and immersed in policy generation for the UK, particularly in trade. Oh, and he co-founded one of Britain's most successful theatre companies!
