About the Artist
Fernanda Franco is fine artist and designer with a delightful mix of global and modern sensibilities, born in Mexico City where she first began drawing and studying art and design. Fernanda moved to New York in 1995 and attended Pratt Institute from which she received a Masters in Graphic Design, after working several years as a designer for Galeria Mexicana de Diseño, a space that features contemporary design in Mexico City. Fernanda has worked as a graphic designer for MoMa, the Whitney Museum and several design studios in New York.
Her involvement with fine art through design includes several bookbinding, ceramics and printmaking workshops with master printers around the world. Her diverse experience across many cultures and disciplines continues to inspire her work.
She finds inspiration in her travels and in nature and in color. Recent trips to France, Italy, Costa Rica, England and Spain have enriched her drawings, prints and wares.

Additional Print information
Our prints are museum quality prints, that use 100% archival rag paper and archival inks, resulting in beautiful prints with rich and vivid colors. All of our prints include a minimum border of 1" for easy framing. Photographs are printed on a thick, white, matte paper.
The dimensions listed are for the paper size and not the image itself, to give you a better understanding of how much space the print will take up when you hang it on your wall.
Our prints are professionally framed with wood mouldings, archival UV plexi-glass, and come ready to hang on your wall with a hanging wire. Prints can be framed with a 2.75" white mat, or without.
You can view frame dimensions here.
We're excited to offer flat-rate shipping rates of $6.95 for unframed prints and $12.95 for framed prints and canvases shipping within the United States.
