Lesley & Patrick Francis are gifted Australian artists who are launching their careers as a poet & visual artist respectively. This book is the first in a series of absolutely outstanding literary accomplishments wherein we witness young Lesley's intuitive interpretation of her brother's exemplary artwork. Patrick struggles with autism & limited communication, so expresses himself through his impressive paintings & stirring lino-prints. They have exhibited their work globally & are universally acclaimed for their talent & ability, having won numerous awards & been featured on the web & in news articles frequently. "Patrick Francis ...this guy is fantastic as he takes on the greats: Munch, Raphael, DaVinci among others. I am nuts about these works." – Peter Fay on works submitted for Out of the Blue Exhibition, Sheffer Gallery, NSW. Fay describes the work chosen for this exhibition as "pretty edgy" & includes work by artists who are "..really prepared to push through to make work that is often difficult to put into any fixed category" - May 2012 http://peterfaygalleries.com/blog/-out-of-the-blue- New Acquisitions from Arts Project Australia!

Would love to see more of your work..." http://northcote-leader.whereilive.com.au/your-news/story/an-artist-and-an-athleter/ “..Patrick Francis has work in several private collections & will be a featured artist for Arts Project Australia in the Melbourne Art Fair at the Royal Exhibition Building in August 2012. His creative expression through art will provide him with lifelong learning & involvement in a challenging & rewarding activity.” Sim Luttin – Gallery & Exhibitions Manager Arts Project Australia http://www.artsproject.org.au/artworks/6550/Francis%2C%20Patrick This publication is my first foray into the written word & it has been an exciting development to say the least. Working with my brother on this project has been a very enlightening & exhilarating experience, sealing our bond & bringing us closer for sure. Patrick’s unbelievable talent & utmost dedication in everything he does, has inspired me to work diligently towards my goals & to “live my dreams”. Despite his difficult daily struggles with autism & continuous communication issues, he relentlessly pushes the boundaries every day, determined to beat the odds & always be a winner. Enjoy! Lesley Francis www.facebook.com/AbsolutelyAwetisticArts Lesley’s perceptive elucidation of these paintings, in the form of poems, is much appreciated. Without her instinctive analysis & explicit explanation of all the pictures, this book would have been impossible to produce – for that I will always be extremely grateful. Also - Thank You to all the staff at Arts Project Australia who have guided me through my exciting artistic adventure with immense patience & understanding. The artwork in this compilation have been specifically chosen to lighten the spirits & improve the mood of the readers. We hope that you will enjoy the journey as much as we did - selecting, producing & publishing it for you. Happy Viewing! Patrick Francis -Patrick has featured in numerous newspaper articles for excellence as an artist and athlete. -Has webpage “Absolutely Awetistic” and “Absolutely Awetistic Arts” promoting global awareness on autism & intellectual disability.
