Frank Serrano

Contemporary landscape artist, Frank M. Serrano was born in Los Angeles on November 29, 1967. He developed an early interest in art and nature, studying throughout his school days, but is largely self-taught. His natural talent eventually gained him a lucrative career as a freelance commercial artist. After his success in the commercial sector, in the early 1990s Serrano decided to pursue his passion for traditional oil painting. With countless gallery shows and magazine articles profiling his work, he has developed a strong following of admirers, both nationally and internationally.

Serrano, an avid outdoorsman, is recognized for his keen sense of atmospheric observation and ability to spontaneously interpret his personal connection with nature onto canvas. In 2002 he completed writing and illustrating the book, Plein Air Painting in Oil, published by the Walter Foster Company and in 2010 completed the filming of an instructional DVD on Plein Air painting produced by American Artist Magazine.  Frank has also served as plein air painting consultant for Walt Disney Studios and has taught at the Disney Academy in Burbank, California.
