Lidia Assenova paints impressionistic figures and portraits, and fragment images of religious icons, working in oils and watercolors. She was born in Bulgaria, in the town of Blagoevgrad in 1955. In 1974 she graduated from the National Arts High School. In 1978, she graduated from the University of Veliko Tarnovo where she majored in painting. She is an art instructor at the Arts Center in the city of Blagoevgrad. Lidia Assenova has been given a number of exhibitions in Bulgaria and has had several one-woman shows.

"I use 'organic geometry' to give form to my love of nature and architecture," says Nancy Frankel. "Space, encapsulated or activated, and a sense of balance, precarious yet centered, are integral to my work."

Frankel's sculptures range from small maquettes and table-top interior works made of plexiglas, plaster, and wood, to large outdoor sculptures made of design-cast (a man-made stone), steel or bronze. Sundials and fountains seamlessly merge form, function, and reflection. "A series of coil-built, fired clay sculptures suggesting the human form, combine carving, construction techniques, staining and painting."

Frankel lives in Maryland, and is represented by the Sculpture Studio Gallery in Washington, D.C.
