Biography from Odon Wagner Contemporary:
Frances Cockburn was born in Preston, Ontario in 1961. She has been painting professionally since the mid-1990s, working primarily in oil on board.

Says the artist, "I paint as I live, present in the places of my life. I locate myself in my world, painting what I see in its simple majesty. In the late 1990s I was drawn to Grey County, with its rolling hills, swamps and rivers. It was the place I lived and worked for over 10 years.

A few years ago I became captivated by urban scenes and streetscapes. This subject insinuated itself into my painting, and from there into my life. I felt compelled to move to an urban environment.

The landscapes of Hamilton, offer urban streetscapes and surprising natural vistas that fascinate my eye. Hamilton's gritty industrial spaces push up against the beauty of the Niagara Escarpment. The work inspires my place. The place inspires my work."
