Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Francine Peters was truly an icon, one of the brightest threads in the fabric of Puerto Vallarta. After moving from Vancouver BC to her adopted home in 2012, her creativity exploded.
Using Vallarta as her muse, each of her colorful paintings capture the flavor of Puerto Vallarta, a stroll through the town she loved. Her acrylic paintings feature bold colors, strong flowing loose brush strokes and often unique, exaggerated perspectives.
Francine’s style of painting captured the attention of many. Demand for her unique perspective of the ordinary gained her successful shows and gallery representation across Canada, Mexico, and the US. Many of Francine’s paintings now hang in private and corporate collections around the world.
Now you can take a colorful stroll through Vallarta as seen through Francine’s eyes while helping the non-profit Casa Esperanza. A coffee table book featuring Francine’s colorful legacy has been created including many of her most-loved works. The books are $400 Pesos/$20 USD and are available at Nacho Daddy, located at Basilio Badillo 287 in the Romantic Zone. 100% of the profits go to support Casa Esperanza women’s shelter.
The shelter’s mission is to support women and their children who are victims of extreme gender violence, to live a life free of brutality by providing them with a secure shelter and all the tools that they need for a safe and secure future. They provide those in need with clothing, food, and medical care. The team includes psychologists, social workers, lawyers, teachers, and nurses, all working intensively with each family in a safe and secure environment so they can live a life free of violence far away from their aggressor.
