The Story

Of the Artist Behind Illyra Collection

Frankie Hsu is a Brooklyn-based mixed media artist whose mission is to transport the human mind into different dimensions through the embodiment of textural patterns found within nature.

Heavily inspired by the nuances of natural phenomenons around the world, she has felt a draw to find the spiritual connection between the human mind and nature. She looks to create portals with her pieces; to explore the ethereal quality of natural elements and its ability to soothe the soul.

With influences of classical training in acrylics and Chinese painting, she has turned to more experimental mediums such as resin and alcohol ink. The technique of layering multiple layers of resin with different sources of pigments to create a depth unable to be created with any other medium.

She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Art at Pratt Institute in 2010 with a Presidential Merit Scholarship in which she has pursued a career as an Art Director in the fashion & luxury advertising world. After more than 10 years in the industry, Hsu has returned to the roots of her passion of creating artwork that seeks to create action and awareness of the necessity in the preservation of nature. Her work currently resides in a multitude of private collections in the US, Europe, and Asia.
