Francois Lamothe

In his role of Artist-Historian, Francois is working en plein air with easel and paintbrushes recording the cityscape as it evolves. His popular 'Americana Shopfronts" series shows how retail, restaurant and business facades enchant tourists and locals alike.

The new profile picture has a story. A commission of Harpoon Willy's dockside restaurant in Portsmouth, the buyer wanted to return to a time 10+ years ago when St. John's Episcopal church on the hill was still visible. Temporal artistic license.

Back to the biography....In 1974, solidifying a lifelong interest in drawing, Francois took an oil painting course. You might say he took time for a career, family and life in general for 27 years (hey, we all have times like that.) In 2001, he renewed his interest in painting . A lifelong camera bug, he had developed an understanding of composition,light and color .He is self taught with his art- with the help of the odd seminar.

The New Hampshire Art Association they enjoy the "whimsical personality in ..style."

His paintings have twice been featured in the " Artists of the Seacoast" Calendar done by the Families First Foundation in Portsmouth. sales of the calendar go to the general fund of this non-profit and are used to aid families with health issues and insufficient funds.


A favorite of tourists to the Portsmouth area, he may be seen painting " en plein aire" most any summer day in Portsmouth.

Nine of his paintings are on display at Michelle's on Market Square (for which he did their logo signage).

He lives with his wife in Wells, Maine, an ideal place to venture out and paint the beauty of the seacoast.
