Frances has facilitated over 50 public art projects since and before founding Mark Making (Children Paint Chattanooga). Public art facilitation is a natural outgrowth of her experience: she has a degree in International Business Administration from American College in Paris and attended the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Beaux Arts.

Frances returned to the new and improved Chattanooga after almost two decades in Paris and NYC where she completed her education and was a professional “easel” painter working with numerous galleries on the east coast, most notably the Allan Stone Gallery in New York.
