About the Artist
Tegan Franks is an Australian, northern beaches artist who draws inspiration from the local beaches and surrounds. She has a long-standing passion for art and has always found a creative angle to everything she does. Her work explores, in an evocative and pared back style, what it feels to be beachside in Australia in the summertime. With details removed, her works are nuanced and atmospheric. Her works liven the walls of many homes across Australia and in her local art gallery. When Tegan is not painting, you will find her at the beach with her four children.
About the Collection
This collection of works was created in my home studio during lockdown. Feeling so blessed to call the ocean home, a forever changing playground for my family, and a never-ending source of inspiration for my work. Daily trips out of the home to the sand and water, to refresh, re-energise and watch as others did the same ‘Sea Therapy’. I never get tired of watching how people interact with the water, sand dwellers, sun-bakers, those who rise with the sun and those who stay until it sets.
