Marti Franks

For many years I had wanted to try painting with watercolors, but two young daughters kept me so busy. In 1996 with both girls in high school, I signed up for watercolor classes with Ellie Cox. I was hooked!

I think what excited me the most was all the possibilities with color, and I loved the transparency of watercolor. Color is so fundamentally important in everything I do.

The reason I love to paint flowers is the wonderful array of colors nature provides, and I love the shapes. I also enjoy painting the landscapes and cityscapes and find that most of the scenes I am attracted to often contain colorful flowers.
