Mary Frankel grew up in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains and studied architecture and design. In her early 30s, she moved with her family to London, where she traveled extensively throughout Europe. 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 Texas and Estes Park, Colorado. 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.
