My name is Frankie Macaulay. I’m a visual artist, born and based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I’m inspired by nature and architecture. I enjoy creating small, three-dimensional sculptures with paper. With a background in photography, I've often used image in my artwork, but prefer to ignore the intrinsic ability of digital photography to produce infinite multiples.
 I build single-edition objects with heavy weight papers, cardstock and printed photographs. 

I graduated with honors from NSCAD University, completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts with a Major in Photography. I've exhibited with galleries in Nova Scotia, Québec and Ontario; and outdoor art projects in Nova Scotia and Stuttgart, Germany.
