Meet Artist Frank Proctor

After retirement as Quartermaster Sergeant in the Regina Rifles Regiment, and from his own business in Mission, B.C., Frank Proctor resumed his love of painting that had been nurtured during his youth in England. He went out painting at every opportunity well into his 90’s and completed some 350 works of art. His works were chosen twice for the British Columbia Festival of the arts, and for exhibitions at the Harrison Gallery and the Gibson Public Art Gallery. While Frank died in 2000, today his paintings continue to be enjoyed.  Recently TMI has started to produce a series of cards featuring some of his hallmark works. A catalogue of available cards and prints can be requested by contacting us.
