Franklin Martin Jr.

Growing up in New York with the Metropolitan Museum in his backyard Franklin has always been surrounded by art. His parents made sure that the weekends were spent doing something creative or artistic. In jr. high and high school Franklin won awards for his acrylic and oil paintings in the pointillism style. His color aesthetic comes from 28 years in the fashion industry in both men’s and women’s clothing. In 2015 he turned his artistic attention to beads and the exploration of dimensional beadwork. You will be able to see some of his work published in the upcoming book Contemporary Geometric Beadwork Vol. 3.
