Frances Alty-Arscott

Frances Alty-Arscott is a professional Alberta artist and art educator living in Edmonton, Alberta. Frances received her BFA from the University of Alberta in 1980. Her vibrant paintings are in public and private collections throughout Canada and the United States.   In addition to her painting, Frances lectures and teaches both adults and children in creative approaches to watercolour. Registered with the Alberta Foundation for the Arts "Artist and Residency Program", Frances specializes in elementary art education. 

Frances Alty Arscott began as a proficient Watercolour Painter and added the medium of Acrylic on Canvas to her repertoire in the early 2000's. Colour can be a powerful element of visual communication and Frances was able to transfer her "Signature use of vibrant colour" in her watercolours to her acrylic paintings. The acrylic medium allowed her to create much larger paintings and the opportunity for more public exhibitions. In 2015, she was commissioned to paint a 3.5ft x 6.5ft painting for Canadian Western Bank in Edmonton Alberta opening the doors for several larger commissioned paintings for various clients. Her subject matter continues to be, her interruption, in her own unique expressionistic style, the many aspects and seasons of both urban and rural Alberta.
