FRANKO (PAUL FRANKLIN)
(Paul Franklin) Alias Franko is a self confessed art addict.
Paul is an Australian born full time artist residing on 160 glorious acres in an area known as “The Scenic Rim” of Queensland. He shares this with a multitude of animals, a beautiful wife and a couple of ankle biters.
Born in Newcastle NSW, and raised there before moving to Queensland, Franko spent much of his early adult life within the apparel industry where he developed refined skills in graphics, and business and marketing expertise.
It was after exiting this industry that he fell in love with painting. Paul said it all started from doing some large scale pieces for my own home. With encouragement from family and friends (though not certain if they were just being polite), I put together a few pieces, and sold 7 pieces in the first week. It was on and as they say “the rest is history”.
