About

FranI am an explorer, journaler, maker and teacher. I’m mad about journaling and have been at it in my studio and on the road for 15 years. I love to cook and eat (not in that order), travel and explore (always, anywhere), garden, museum hop, blog (exploring life, travel and art – the good stuff) dance (with or without a partner), teach art (big and tiny humans here at Two Hands and in my studio) scavenge and collect (think corvid librarian), am inspired by the intricacies and divine beauty of nature, and am a life long learner and experimenter. In a former life I was Associate Publisher of a nationally circulated environmental magazine called Buzzworm. You can find my work on my blog and in these publications:  1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol, Beaded Embellishment by Amy Clarke, 500 Beaded Objects by  Lark Books, and in issues of Studios Magazine, Beadwork Magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors Magazine and in The Brooklyn Art Library’s Sketchbook Project.
