Transfixed by the beauty of the countryside near her home and inspired by the achievements of the German Expressionists and the Fauves, Frank, at 43, began painting New Mexican landscapes in the bold colors and expressionist style which have become her trademark. She states, "Within 20 miles from my house, I can paint high mountain scenery, the snow line, the tree line where it is bare; I can paint the gorge of the Rio Grande, high desert and rock canyons." She usually paints outdoors with a partner, and while her work can by no means be described as realism, she prides herself on the fact that, by looking at her paintings, "the people around here know exactly where I was, what I was looking at."
