Dr. Bill Franks: A Trip to Inuit Country
Bill Franks started his painting career as a boy rowing A.Y. Jackson around the Go-Home Bay area of Georgian Bay. He was influenced by Jackson and started an oil painting career “en plein air”. Jackson taught him how to make a sketch box and introduced him to the basics of colour.
Franks’ painting experience has taken him from one coast of Canada to the other, plus five trips to the High Arctic. His paintings hang in private collections across Canada and internationally.
Recently he has been active in group and one-man shows. He strives to present the rhythm, pattern, design and colour of the changing landscape of Canada.
