Who is Frank Francese?

“He’s just an ol’ guy from Colorado that really enjoys painting!” Frank Francese, 2018.

After experimenting with several artistic mediums, Frank got his start in watercolors in 1969 while attending Mesa College in Grand Junction, Colorado. A significant step on the road to notoriety came in 1998 when one of his paintings was purchased by a Donor of the Denver Art Museum and presented to that organization. The painting remains a permanent part of the Denver Art Museum’s contemporary art collection.

Frank has conducted workshops for the past thirty plus years all across America as well as on two other continents.

Frank Francese watercolor workshops have been attended by students in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, Holland, Belgium and Ireland.

The artist has been published in several professional magazines over his career, including Artist Magazine, Watercolor Artist (formerly known as Watercolor Magic) and Splash V.  His images have earned more than fifty awards in state, national and international competitions.

Francese is a signature member of the following organizations and societies:  National Watercolor Society; Transparent Watercolor Society of America {Master Status}; Watercolor West; Western Federation Watercolor Society; San Diego Watercolor Society and Colorado Watercolor Society.
