About

franks-photoA native of the Pacific Northwest, Frank spent his childhood playing in orchards and camping with his family in the Cascade Mountains and on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. After touring Europe and North Africa, Frank married a New Mexican and moved to Albuquerque to study architecture and art at the University of New Mexico. A registered architect, he has worked throughout the United States and China.

Frank is equally at home with watercolors and oils. His landscapes, still-lifes and portraits reflect his love of the places and people where he has lived and traveled. His paintings are in private collections throughout the US and have hung in many juried shows including the Taos Society of Portrait Painters, the Western Federations of Watercolor Societies, the New Mexico Watercolor Society, Masterworks of New Mexico, the New Mexico State Fair, and the Los Alamos Art Center. He is a past-president of the New Mexico Watercolor Society and past-chair of the New Mexico Watercolor Society Signature Member Group.
