Art Form & Inspiration
Astronomy and planetary science continues to play a strong role in Frank’s interests and has since age three. In addition to interning two years on the Galileo spacecraft’s science team for planetary geology, he has built three telescopes, published in Sky and Telescope magazine and was invited three times as an educational guest astronomer at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in Namibia. Amateur astronomy remains his number one hobby and the night sky his creative and spiritual muse.
Today, Frank combines those astronomical interests with photography to share a unique perspective combining natural subjects with the heavens aiming to tell a story.
