Mary Frank is a contemporary American artist renown for her painting, printmaking, photography, and work with ceramics. Mary Frank was born in London, England in the year 1933. Her family relocated to the United States after World War 2. Frank’s work often uses the figure and landscape as her subject matter.

Frank studied at the American Art School in New York City. The artist also studied with other notable artists including a famous wood carver named Alfred Van Loan.
