Glorious Colour: Paintings by Dunedin Artist, Franky Strachan

It’s evident from Franky’s paintings and personal style that she loves experimenting with colour. Her painting style and subject matter choices are very eclectic: from abstract, to simplistic to detailed accuracy to whimsy. We love it all.

Franky loves dragonflies, describing the sound of their wings as “full and evocative” She has therefore compared this to the musical term ‘a cappella’.

You look amazing, Franky.
