I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021

I joined this group called "Art For The Heart". I was reading some of the stories behind the art work they have posted. Two of them made me cry. That is what art is about! That is what everyone should know and learn about art! It helps heal the soul. Everyone should be or at least try.   I want to teach this to my students. However I am too emotionally attached to the idea. When I try to express this feeling and the importance of it I lose my composure and give my self away. So I can write it.. but I can not speak it. One day.. I will paint it. But how?
