Frans was born in Holland where he trained to be an art teacher before his conscription into the Dutch army. After two years in the army he gained a diploma in printmaking and photography at Groningen College of Art.

Frans moved to England in 1979 where he has worked and exhibited widely in both one-man shows and group exhibitions. His paintings and etchings are in private collections as well as in the Ashmolean and Fitzwilliam museums. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Printmakers. Often his paintings, etchings and stained glass tell a story.

His work has been shown at the Royal Society of Printmakers, London; National Print Exhibition, Mall Galleries, London; Galerie Inkt, The Hague, Holland; and the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, to name but a few. In 2006 he was selected for the International Festival of Glass.

Frans has designed and made a  set of eight windows in conjunction with the “Godiva Awakes” project. Together they tell the story of Godiva, of a thousand years of Coventry history, and of women who, like Godiva, made sacrifices for the common good.
