Fran Fit, born in Belfast in the 1930′s began his career as an art teacher but later decided to concentrate solely upon painting.  He spent many years working with the Magee Gallery Belfast and the Arches Gallery.

The artist has had a number of his works reproduced in print form, most notably Strangford Lough and The Mountains of Mourne.

His preferred medium is oil paint, applied with an impasto style which brings the ladscapes to life.  Franfits work can be viewed in many galleries throughout Ireland and in collections as far a field as Canada and the USA.
