Kelly Franke (Astoria)
I am from Babylon, Long Island, NY
My favorite artists are Ernesto Carivano, Gustav Klimpt, and John Singer Sargent.
The Queens art scene needs more galleries. There is so much talent, and I would love to see more of it year round.
I find inspiration in surrounding architecture. When I’m in the city, I draw the city. When I’m by the water, I draw nautical structures. Upstate, I’ll draw barns.
Always make it work.
Never say never.
My next project is a series of works for Addo in Sag Harbor.
