Frank Sowells, Jr. was born to be an artist, winning his first art contest at the age of five. He is a graduate of the Art Institute of Dallas, and also studied at Texas Tech. He has worked in the commercial art field, and was a court illustrator for several years.

Frank later turned his attention to the fine arts, founding Art View Creations. He is inspired and influenced by a diverse group of fine artists including Alix Beaujour, Charles Bibbs, and Arthello Beck; and also by his pastor, T. D. Jakes. Frank believes that all things are possible with God.

Frank utilizes watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, pencil, pastel and oil in his works. His work has been called passionate – using strikingly vibrant color, evoking strong emotion, and expressing movement. He enjoys experimenting with new techniques and textures and strives to keep his work fresh and inventive. A frequent traveler, Frank has participated in numerous art exhibitions such as the United Negro College Fund, the National Black Arts Festival, and the African American Museum.

SWA Meeting Jan. 23 – Guest Artist Marla Morrison Fucich


NEXT MEETING JANUARY 23rd. The Society of Watercolor Artists meets every third Monday from September through May with the exception of January, because of MLK day.  Time: 7pm. (6:30 critique by Jo Williams) Location: University of North Texas Health Science Center, Bldg. 2 – Everett Hall, Fort Worth, TX 76107. Directions see website: http://www.swawatercolor.com/

Guest Artist: Marla Morrison Fucich

I currently live in the Dallas area. I have a B.F.A. from Texas State University, in San Marcos, Texas, and an M.F.A. from Claremont Graduate University, in Claremont, California. My work is rooted in drawing techniques. I use acrylic inks on smooth board, and enjoy the ‘action and reaction’ of design. While I reference items from nature, like leaves, bugs, and animal tails, for example, the work is non-objective

From 1999 to the present, I’ve been an Education Advisor for Winsor & Newton. I give workshops showcasing Winsor & Newton artists’ materials at colleges and universities in the North Texas Area. The presentations cover pigment history, how quality color is made, color bias, pigment characteristics, glazing technique, use of mediums and primers, how to choose the best brush, and more. Thanks to this job, I look forward to sharing painting information with any interested person.
