Once called “one of the most talented classical dancers in Europe,“ Françoise Mandonnaud Stotts was born in Limoges, France, became an American citizen and lives in Sarasota, Florida. Hand-picked by Roland Petit to join his world-famous ballet company, Françoise (whose theatrical nickname is “Frenchie”) toured the U.S. and performed as a featured dancer throughout Europe on stage, television and in the movies. She was last seen dancing on “STAR SEARCH 88”. After pursuing a second career as a photo stylist in the U.S., she embarked on a third career as a fine artist. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries, one-woman-shows, art festivals and art centers in Williamstown, MA, and in Sarasota and Bradenton, FL. “Frenchie…the artist” is Françoise’s first book and the story of a colorful and extraordinary life fearlessly lived… and yours to enjoy!
