Francesca Saveri

May 20/21

Francesca Saveri is a California abstract artist committed to creating beauty through full expression. She credits Nature to be her essential teacher and her best learning environment in which she has constant interaction.

Her work is deeply influenced by lifelong practices in music, writing and movement. A former teacher, she treasures the process of growth and learning through exploration, risk taking, and collaboration. With a mixture of a little magic, humor and the belief that anything is possible, she realizes her creative visions through the medium of encaustic.

Yearly visits to Salvador, Brazil have greatly shaped her work. This confluence of Brazil and California has led her to create large encaustic paintings with strong color, bold shapes and organic mark making. Through personal experience, Francesca has learned how color can be a powerful change agent and be used to influence emotions, health and soulful integrity.

Francesca has exhibited in galleries, museums and major art fairs throughout the United States. Her collectors regularly seek her out during Open Studio months in the East. She’ll begin exhibiting this March 2023 at the Superfine Artfair in San Francisco.

Art lovers can also visit her studio where they can learn more about encaustic painting and be guided in their art acquisition. Francesca also offers encaustic painting workshops in her studio.

I strongly believe that color is a change agent. How we dress, decorate our homes, and even the food we eat can be seen through color. I invite you to think about how you bring color into your life. How would it be if red pants were chosen instead of black today? How might the day go? What would your words be? How would you feel? A little more lively, risky, adventurous?

I create colorful, abstract paintings and prints in encaustic. Encaustic, a mixture of beeswax, damar resin & pigment, is applied hot to a wood panel and is then heated using a torch. My paintings range in size from small to large. I also create encaustic paintings on paper and monoprints. Many paper pieces are framed and ready to hang.
