Francoise Eliassaint
Francoise Eliassaint was born in 1958 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She is one of the few internationally acclaimed woman painters in Haiti. She began painting as a student of the famous painter Andre Normil, and later became his wife.

In 1982 Eliassaint joined the Saint-Soleil school, and is best known for her religious, i.e., voudou themes. Her work depicts a remarkable melding of Christian and voudou symbolism.
