Biography


Mary Frankel grew up in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains and studied architecture and design.  In her early thirties, she moved with her family to London, where she traveled extensively throughout Europe in the incredibly rich artistic environment there.  Frankel's artistic expression and desire was thus ignited into a passion for painting the landscapes and people passing through her world.  Frankel now divides her time between Estes Park, Colorado and Texas.  She has been influenced by and has studied with professional painters who have taught her the techniques to bring light and form to the canvas.  Her teachers include; Dan Gerhartz, Carolyn Anderson, Quang ho and Kim English among others.Working from life, either plein air on location or in the studio, Frankel represents her subjects with a style of painting that captures the beauty of impressionism with contemporary technique and form.  Her artwork resides in numerous local and international collections.
