Frank Carson(1881-1968) was born in Waltham, Massachusetts. With a society that devoured art and discovering his own artistic gifts, he enrolled in several schools of art that included his training in the Massachusetts Normal Art School, the Fenway Art School, the Art Students League in New York City, and the Boothbay Art Colony in Maine.

Throughout his education, he tried to stay true to his many loves, and took up the careers of a writer, a teacher, a critic, and most notably a painter. It appears that Frank Carson had an insatiable thirst to touch the lives of others. He traveled and worked along the New England coast and is noted for working in Bermuda.

Frank Carson's works are boldly colored, some resembling the works of Winston Lawler, Seago, and Paul Gauguin. His developmental growth was encompassed in the transition from Impressionist to Post-Impressionist art. His styles are bold with bold brush strokes; his colors could almost be titled Expressionist. With the sweep of artistic freedom and expression, Frank Carson's work became a favorite among Americans.
