Frank Sheehan grew up in rural Ireland in the 1960s where people smiled a lot regardless of whether they were happy or not; as a result his artwork is cautionary and introspective. He studied Classical Art at Trinity College Dublin, the Moderns at Pratt Institute in New York City and Venetian Renaissance Painting at Scolazzi Internationale in Venice, Italy. He currently lives and works in New York City and has been included in many group shows in West Chelsea and beyond. His work is included in several important private collections and he has had numerous commissions. His drawings have been published in a book by Bruno Gmunder, and in New York Home magazine, and also in Western Interiors magazine. After a successful showing of his vortex paintings an extensive blog feature article followed on 'French Soiree' website. He was subsequently interviewed by Yann Arthus Bertrand for the '1 Million People on Camera' project at the Centre Georges Pompidou, in Paris. His medical photographs have been published in Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report, and in textbooks worldwide.
