About

Suzanne .k. Franklin is a West Australian artist with over two decades of art practice behind her. Over the past decade focus has been given to process based work but recent work in drawing and sculpture has seen a return to a more narrative based approach in subject matter. The city-scape works here were developed over a number of years beginning while living in London. These reflect the contrast between the warmth and space of an Australian landscape and the dirt and grime of London streets.
