Francee' Bouvenir-Tales, Arts & Creations

Francee' Bouvenir had took a back seat from pursuing her artistic talents so she could deal with the real world as a single mother. But never did she phrased herself out as an artist and some of her children followed in her footsteps of her artistic talents. When her children became older, Francee' resumed her endeavors as a multidisciplinary talent author, artist, poet and designer who also utilizes her talents to advocate for civil rights and social change. A Francee' began telling stories from what she saw on television, to her classmates when she was about 8 or 9 years-old. It was also the time she became interest in poetry then wrote some of her own and presented a few while still in elementary school. Then in her sophmore year at an all girls private high school, Francee made her first acting debut. Students acted from scripts were done from television shows and written by own students work. Francee' also studied cosmetology, the art of beauty cultural another artistic talent along with drawings while in high school some students and faculty members thought she was taking art but didn't. Francee stills kept a strong connection with her artistic talents. She continues with her performances in acting, writing books (poetry and children), poet performances, paintings, drawing, photography, mixed and decorative acts. Francee' is willing for a fee negotiate.
