Gene Franks

Gene Franks, who began drawing and painting at the age of 10, is a renowned master of expressive pencil drawing. Franks spent his early years in rural Arkansas, where he had the opportunity to observe the beauty of nature. He dedicated many hours of intense study to perfect his drawing techniques and, during the process, created many fine works in pencil. A U.S. Air Force veteran and former merchant marine, Franks took advantage of quiet moments to hone his drawing skills. He obtained formal art training from Jefferson Mackhammer School of Art in Santa Monica, California, and acquired additional skills through classes at the Art Center in Pasadena. During his career as a professional artist, Franks has taught classes and inspired hundreds of students with his unique drawing style. He has discovered that almost anyone, when shown how to handle the pencil, can do quite well. Franks is the recipient of numerous art awards, and his work is displayed in private collections nationwide. Franks and his wife, Jane, live in Charleston, Arkansas.
