Frank Schooneveldt Australian artist

Frank's work is influenced by a number of factors: the time he spent as a child exploring the bush environment near homes in Greensborough and Healesville, Victoria; the proximity of some well known artists that gave glimpses of life in the studio that excited his youthful imagination; the juxtaposition of the natural and built environments observed through his "day job" in building and construction; and a passionate interest in both Australian and international art.

Frank's work has developed over 30 years and has an intense energy that emphasises colour, shape and form. He has participated in a number of exhibitions including Creative Gippsland 2011, 2012 & 2013, San Remo Art Show 2011, Walker Street Gallery's "9 x 5", City of Kingston's Arts Blitz, Chapel Off Chapel Gallery Momentos and a joint exhbition with Frank Merchant Two Points of View - Chapel Off Chapel Gallery. His work is represented in private and corporate collections.
