NOT THAT *LISA FRANK!*
This Lisa Frank is a Sony Alpha+ photographer and a MacDowell Colony fellow. She holds an MFA in Design Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she has taught computer generated design and digital photography as an adjunct professor.
Lisa’s journey to photography was a natural outgrowth of her childhood in the small northwestern Illinois town of Mount Carroll where she participated in the summer stock theatre, Timber Lake Playhouse, that her father founded. This love of theatre motivated Lisa to get a graduate certificate in scene painting and design at the Yale School of Drama. She worked for many years at the Metropolitan Opera as a union scenic artist and at scene shops responsible for Broadway productions and film sets. Frank also designed textiles, wall-coverings and decorative surfaces for high-end interiors while in the New York City area.
