Frank Traynor

Artist-Educator in Residence 2021-2022

Frank Traynor was born in Miami and has worked as an art teacher, sailor, pumpkin carver, costume maker, and Christmas tree salesman. He is hoping to use his time at Children’s Museum of the Arts to develop his puppetry work so he can finally leave it all behind and become the puppeteer in the dappled light on the edge of a clearing in the woods he was born to be.
