|BORN in Taiwan and raised on the island of Okinawa, Frances Ku started drawing
at the age of 3. After high school, she spent one year at Parsons School of Design in New
York City to study fashion design, developing the skill of making the human figure come
alive in art. Be it a diva gracing a tropical backdrop, a mermaid underwater, or a bamboo
forest, Ku expertly handles the brush to the tiniest detail. Often told by her peers that
her work is reminiscent of Gustav Klimt, the Viennese artist of the 19th
century, she paints in both oil and watercolor to create colorful textures and moods.
KU paints with her imagination, transforming composition and color into emotion. "I love creating the kind of art that reverberates something within the soul of every viewer. Viewers then walk away from the painting like they walk away from a good movie. It lingers on their mind and they come back to see it again. The painting becomes unforgettable."
HER love for islands drove her to places such as Greece, Southeast Asia, Micronesia, and now, Maui. "The more beauty I see on earth, the more awed I am of God. There is singularly no other masterpiece than the handiwork of earth itself, or the universe for that matter."
WORKS of art by Ku are collected all over the world bringing inspiration and pleasure to homes and offices in Maui, Oahu, London, Taipei, Okinawa, and San Francisco.
