Francis Edward Sweet
1402 Port Echo Lane
Bowie, Maryland 20716

Representative: F.E.Sweet Studos

Francis Sweet was born in Watertown, New York, in 1938. Demonstrating an exceptional artistic talent in his early years, he began his self initiated training in art while still going to grade school. He began his efforts in oil, and he still remains partial to that medium today. He has, however, perfected the unforgiving art of scratchboard to the level of recognition, by his peers, as the best in the field today. Images of Fran's paintings and scratchboards have been reproduced in over fifty periodicals nationally and in sixteen touring catalog exhibitions in more than forty museums and wildlife venues in the United States.
