In Memoriam: B. Frank Oord

Frank was a founding member of CAAA and was an active contributor to the association.

Frank received most of his education in The Netherlands, where he studied industrial design, engineering as well as graphic design, with further studies in Canada at the University of Toronto, College of Education.

He moved to Canada after serving two years in the Royal Dutch Navy. He travelled and worked throughout Canada as artist, teacher, and designer while at times engaged in diverse projects such as jet-engine development, communication satellites, earth-station antennas, and mobile telephone equipment. Frank maintained gallery-artist status during those years.

His aviation paintings were selected for most of the annual juried ArtFlight exhibitions at the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa. His work is among the prize winners, with several of his paintings forming part of the Museum's permanent collection.

His artwork remains as a testament to his talent, unique style and interest in aviation art.
