Frances Marina Vettergreen is a visual artist who lives and works in Calgary, Alberta. Her work follows three streams: abstract paintings in oil and cold wax inspired by her personal experience of natural spaces and events; plein air landscapes in watercolour and drawing media; and “small fruit”, still life paintings in oil and cold wax made from direct observation.

Frances Vettergreen studied drawing at Alberta College of Art then went on to earn her BFA (with distinction) in painting at the University of Alberta. She has exhibited her work in Alberta and Ontario, taught drawing and painting at Lakehead University in Kenora, Ontario, and is collected internationally. She presently maintains a studio in Calgary’s historic Beltline.
