CREATIVE ENERGY | The Arterie is a place for freedom of expression

Franke is a trained artist specializing in watercolor, with a strong emphasis on photorealism and printmaking. She also has a solid background in teaching. She studied art education along with art history at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and pursued graduate studies in both art education and the fine arts at California State University, Northridge. Her own art deals with the dichotomy of man and machine, often combining traditional subject matter (such as the human figure) into landscapes in mixed media formats on both small and large scales. Franke’s biggest influences (in art and teaching) are Georgia O’Keefe, Ed Ruscha and the German expressionists. -- Ventura County Reporter
