Francien Krieg [1973]  is a Dutch artist who lives in the countryside in the middle of The Netherlands with her two children and husband, working fulltime in her studio.

She graduated in 1998 from the Royal art academy in The Hague, study course Monumental art.  That brought her to think  conceptually and she discovered her fascination for the human body. Francien Krieg expressed her thoughts in these academic years with meat installations and human skins made of rubber.

A few years later, she picked up her passion for painting  at The Free Academy of The Hague. She expressed her fascination for the human body into paintings with strange body perspectives. Soon her work was picked up by art collectors and art galleries. Her work became part the Dutch art collections like ING Collection and the former Scheringa collection. 

Francien has shown at Scope Basel, art fair Realisme Amsterdam, Robert Lange Studios Charleston USA,  Zhou B Art Center, Townsend atelier and recently an exhibition at Gallery Beinart. In 2017, she was nominated for the Dutch Portrait Award and shortlisted for the Figurativas 2017 MEAM in Barcelona. Additionally, her work was published in the Austrian art magazine Milionart Kaleidoscope.
