Biography Frances Elizabeth Karlsson
Frances Karlsson was a city girl who married a farmer, ultimately defining her artistic identity. Ten miles from the Canadian border on a small (240 acre) grain and dairy farm, Karlsson raised six children while painting watercolors reflecting the life she was living with her husband Karl Einar Karlsson.
Born July 19, 1925 in Peoria, Illinois to Neil and Elizabeth McNeill, Frances and her brother Richard were raised in a modest home. Her first memory of interest in art was at 4 years old, watching her mother entertain her in church sketching the backs of people's heads in a little red notebook. Frances, at 8 years old, took over the little red notebook drawing women with large wide-brimmed hats covered in flowers.
