Frank Balaam was born in the United Kingdom and attended Blackpool and Edinburgh Colleges of Fine Art. For the past 50 years, he has painted and travelled extensively including Europe, Africa, the Cook Islands, and the United States where he now resides in a small mountain town in Eastern Arizona.
The combination of classical training in the arts accompanied by a lifetime of painting portraits, murals, landscapes, and figurative works, culmiate in Balaam's newest creative forests that radiate with the energy of passion and life.
"I like the passion of oil paint, the surface, the thick brushstrokes loaded with pigment, the flamboyant interaction of colour, and I like it all to coalesce into an identifiable whole allowing the viewer to inhabit both journey and destination with barely a fractional alteration in perception."
