Biography

Kaye Franklin began her art career in 1975 while living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. She and her family moved to Graham, Texas in 1979, it was then that she began a serious quest for the best schools and instructors. Franklin studied at the Scottsdale Artist School and with Connecticut artist William Henry Earle. Her pursuit of excellence has won her the deepest respect of her students, peers and serious collectors. She has received many national awards and honors that have culminated in her recognition as master pastelist, and her election to signature membership in the Pastel Society of America and Oil Painters of America.

The elements in her artwork consist of light, color and focal point. She likes working with both pastels and oils. Pastels show immediate results and they stay brilliant, oils allow you to create new colors from existing pigments.

Franklin teaches weekly classes and conducts several workshops at various locations throughout the year. Her work can be seen at the Hensley Gallery of the Southwest in Taos, New Mexico, and Zantman Gallery in Ketchum, Idaho.
