This site showcases the many ways my artwork can be put to use--as fine art prints, fabric, wall covering, theatrical projections, videos, VR apps, and... who knows what's next?! Collaborative projects with challenging goals are always welcome.
Please take advantage of the many PDF links included throughout the site. These eBrochures describe my work more thoroughly and are intended to be downloaded, shared, and kept on hand for future opportunities.
I am now able to create viewing rooms that will allow you to showcase potential selections for your clients. Let me know if you are interested in having one set up.
Prints from the "Cabinet of Curiosity" and "Captive Splendor" portfolios are available for direct sale in the "Print Studio."
I look forward to hearing your requests, questions, thoughts, and corrections. Recipes and gardening tips are also welcome!
Most importantly, thank you for visiting this site. I appreciate your support and interest in independent artists. It's people like yourself who help keep working artists in the business of creating artwork.
Lisa A. Frank is a fine art photographer who explores the natural world, searching for oddly decorative and darkly mysterious subjects that can be digitally fractured and ornamentally rejoined, creating intricate artworks with a lively story of their own. Because...why not?
Beginning in November 2020 I traveled to 15 zoos to photograph animals in captivity with the intention of staging them inside the Thorne Miniature Rooms as updated natural history dioramas. The animals are depicted interacting with the domestic verisimilitude of Mrs. Thorne’s miniatures like a cast of characters in a one-room drama. Part dollhouse, part theatrical set, part tableaux, the reimagined rooms juxtapose the wild with the cultivated using digital taxidermy and contemporary discomfort.
Do you need technical guidance with a personal photo project or assistance with Adobe software and camera equipment? Do you wish to become more comfortable exploring and photographing in natural settings? I am now offering mentoring subscriptions!
