Franka Palek was born in the Pacific Northwest. She started painting at a later age after traveling and becoming inspired by the colors and textures of the world. She finds inspiration in fabric patterns, nature, and gritty, abstract cityscapes.
If necessary, oil and acrylic paintings can be cleaned with a damp cloth or by a professional art conserver. Works under glass can be cleaned using a glass cleaner, but avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning works under plexi to prevent surface damage.
