About the Artist

Craig Frankowski

“I started my art training in grade schoolboy attending classes at the Toledo Museum of Fine Art. Art was my high school and college (Bowling Green State University, Ohio State University, and Columbus College of Arts & Design).

For employment, amongst a variety of positions, I finished as an Architectural Lighting Designer. After retirement, I resumed oil painting in a realistic style with a floral motif as my primary subject on a single stretched canvas.

In 2008, I started combining multiple canvases f different thicknesses, removing the canvas, re-cutting and re-stretching the canvases to form shapes other than square or rectangular. Before painting, I would assemble and permanently secure all the pieces to form one stretched canvas with different thicknesses and shapes, sometimes tapered, sometimes rounded, some freeform, some with openings, etc.

One of my latest paintings is in an “L” shape. That is meant to go around a wall corner.

My next transition was t go from realism to cubism/ whimsical, but with a twist, the cubism/whimsical would include some realism, and I sometimes added just a tiny amount of glitter for a touch of sparkle when the light hits it. So, for example, my dancer series employs glitter instead of sequins on parts of the dress and gowns.

I hope that you will enjoy my artwork as much as I do.”
