Intuitive  abstract paintings, collage, original prints, and mixed media.

I’m Fran Simon, an ever-evolving boundless abstract artist who is intrigued by the question, “what if?”

I’m in it for the love of creating.

Thanks for your interest in my art. Welcome to my little piece of the Internet where I share what I’m up to.

I crave creating. I do it for the sake of the experience. For me, making art is an exploration and a never ending journey.  I push the boundaries with art materials and follow my curiosity.

I’ve been hiding in my studio with hundreds of paintings, collages, painted papers, and gel prints since 2017. Now, in 2023, I’m finally unveiling the the results of my experiments with you.

About Fran

I used to say I was an emerging abstract artist, but now I call myself an evolving artist, because my path began in my teens. Evolution is a part of every piece I make because my art is intuitive and expressionistic.

Prior to reconnecting with my art roots from high school and college, I had a long career in early care and education management. My art is influenced by those experiences. You can see in my gallery my approach is playful and expansive, like young children’s art. My heart is that of a young child who knows no boundaries, rules, or limits.
