Using bright colors to paint his local landscape, Jess Franks‘vibrant art is instantly recognizable. Franks worked as a magazine graphic designer and it is immediately evident that this influences his ability to create eye-catching paintings. Inspired by the New England landscape, Franks turned to painting several years ago to help open up the world as she sees it, a world filled with color. In addition to collaborations with clients like Anthropology and Hit, her much sought-after work is quickly picked up when she releases new prints.

With touches of fuchsia and aquamarine, its landscapes and flowers stand out from the canvas. In fact, while her color choices may seem unusual to some, they come naturally to Franks. “I’ve been obsessed with color combinations since childhood, so for me art has always been so focused on developing palettes,” she told My Modern Met. “I have discovered that by using these palettes in familiar landscape structures, I am able to make paintings that are unexpected, but accessible.”

As an avid hiker, Franks finds a lot of inspiration around her. In fact, she often paints directly from photos taken on her iPhone during her outings. Bright and filled with joy, his paintings transport us to a different world while offering the comfort of a familiar space. It’s easy to get lost in its vibrant blue sky or imagine a walk through the colorful forests.

For Frank, bringing some of his own serenity and happiness to others is part of what makes painting so satisfying. “The colors I use communicate how I feel when I see mountain top views or the intricacies of a flower up close. My collectors tell me that my paintings and prints are points of light in their homes, like windows to worlds they can lose themselves in, reminders of peace and joy even when life is not currently feeling these things. If I communicated hope through my work and viewers felt it, then I was successful.
