What a delight to discover yet another distinguished former pupil, in the person of Hannah Frank. Hannah is a well renowned artist and sculptor whose work is respected and critically acclaimed. An exhibition of Hannah's work will be touring the UK over the next four years and will finish in Glasgow in 2008, the year of Hannah Frank's centenary. Hannah resides at Westacres Care Home in Newton Mearns where some of her sculptures and drawings are on show. Visit her site, "Hannah Frank - A Glasgow Artist" at this link: 
and discover, or rediscover, the wonderful talent of this amazing artist.

note: Hannah Frank passed away a few months after reaching her 100th birthday
