Helen Frank’s own life is as beautiful and fascinating as her works of art. Through her signature expressive lines and brilliant uses of color, Frank pays homage to life and its day-to-day activities. Frank draws daily and believes that it is through her line that she communicates most effectively and she must draw each and every day.
The exuberance of Frank’s art is born out of extensive travels with her husband and family as well as a tremendous appetite for the energy of life. It might be a visit to a local monastery, a biking trip through the Netherlands, a New York Yankees baseball game or a trip to a museum. Each and every experience is subject matter for Helen. Franks finds the sublime in everyday life and the extraordinary within the ordinary. Frank’s art is to be experienced and easily treasured.
