Ontario fine artist Franklin Beecham, from Wortley Village, in London, Canada says...
“Painting is a spiritual expression where the artist becomes the creator. It transmits cultural messages through interaction with the viewer evoking an emotional response.
My travels from Europe to Asia, North and most recently, South America, have taught me to appreciate a variety of art forms, infinite colours and the randomness of nature. I apply these experiences to my own abstract works with an array of many styles and techniques, implementing my own sense of colour and stroke.
A professional graphic designer since 1979, I returned to painting after a lengthy absence creating a growing catalogue of work at my home studio. Currently listed at several online art galleries with fine art paintings that are now in private collections across Canada. the USA and Asia.
I am pleased to say that several donations of selected paintings have helped raise funds benefiting such causes as the Breast Health Centre at the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Habitat for Humanity Canada, the Markham Arts Council, Scarborough Basketball Association and the Varley Art Gallery Foundation.
Currently, I am a member of the York Region Arts Council and founder of markhamartscollective.com, a visual artist resource initiative.
Recently relocated to London, Ontario in the Wortley Village area a vibrant community exuding a creative ambience.
Please enjoy my art.”
