    Frank Goff

    Born into a military family with roots in Arkansas, Frank Goff was exposed to a rich variety of cultural experiences that influenced his desire to become an artist at an early age. Goff attended The Memphis College of Art and received a B.A. in Art with teaching credentials at Arkansas Tech University and a M.S.E. from The University of Central Arkansas. After retiring from teaching, he relocated to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas where he now works as a full-time professional artist.

His artwork features both two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces that are inspired by the wonders of the natural world. Through his drawings and scratchboard engravings, Goff seeks to capture the intricate details and stunning beauty of nature in all its forms.

He uses direct wood carving techniques to craft each sculpture with precision and care. Once complete, he arranges the sculptures into small-scale tableaus, which serve as inspiration for his two-dimensional works. By inviting viewers to enter the tableau and interpret the setting in their own way, he aims to create an interactive experience that encourages a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
