My name is Sharon Franke. I am from St. Louis, Missouri and now live in Little Rock, Arkansas.

I was a Fine Art major in high school and college. I have studied at Fontbonne University and Washington University in St. Louis. I have taken numerous workshops and classes in Missouri, California, and Arkansas.

My work is in several collections including the Cenral Arkansas Library System, PatrIck Hayes Center and the Win Rockefeller Cancerr Research Center at UAMS., along with several private collections. I have won numerous awards with the Arkansas League of Artists of which I am a past President and Signature Member.

I strive to use color and light to produce interesting scenes and images. My greatest joy is someone to chose one of my paintings for their home or business.

I paint landscapes, water scenes, livestock and still life's. I paint plein aire and in the studio. I was heavily influenced by growing up in Missouri and spending time on my grandparents' farm and my parents' appreciation for spending time outdoors.

Thank you for visiting my site! I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. [...]
