For Frankie art has been an important part of her life from an early age. Growing up in the countryside gave her the opportunity to observe nature. Her awareness of the beauty in nature resulted in an appreciation for the natural beauty found in the simple things in life. Sunrises, sunsets, seasonal landscapes, fruits, flowers, birds and her grandmother's collectibles are found in many of Frankie's paintings. She adds a mood with a touch of romanticism to these subjects. Frankie’s work has hung in the White House and the Mississippi Pavilion at the World Fair in New Orleans.
