Last updated: June 29, 2017



Anneli Di Francis works as an artist and teaching artist in Seinäjoki, Finland. Born in 1965, and studied ceramics and arts in the College of Arts and Crafts in Tervola, she searched deeper expression for her work in Norway under the guidance of Kari Bugge-Gjerstad.

She is known for her unique world, where triangle headed people in sculptures will meet twisted humour in paintings. Her works have been in several juried exhibitions around the world.
