Artist Gallery
Fran Bull has been creating art since her childhood. As a young girl, Bull studied art at the Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey. Later, she studied painting at Bennington College and obtained her MA from New York University in Art and Art Education in 1980. Her early work was influenced by the Pop art and Photo-Realism movements, and she exhibited her art commercially in New York City at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery. In 1986, Bull traveled to rural Ireland to develop her personal voice. During this journey, she created a large body of ink drawings, several of which were used to illustrate collections of poetry. Bull expanded her focus to other mediums including performance art, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, set design, and painting. Her prints especially have received numerous awards and recognitions. Additionally, Bull works as a professor of art in Vermont, where she founded a fine art gallery and performance space entitled Gallery-In-the-Field. Bull’s work has been collected by notable museums and galleries, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Guilin Museum in China. Currently, she creates her art in Brandon, Vermont, and Barcelona, Spain.
