Frank started his exploration of art when he was a child.  Soon after being shown a simple drawing by his mother he decided that creating images was the job for him.  Frank has studied and explored art in many mediums over the years.  He has been working solidly in the world of art since high school.  Earlier he worked in the commercial art field as well as exhibiting art in many art galleries in Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.  His work has been seen in “Galleries West Magazine”, “Edmonton Women’s Magazine”, and “Watercolour Artist Magazine (June 2009 issue)”.
