Frank Lopez is a massage and bodywork entrepreneur and teacher who left the corporate world and his role as a Marketing Director at Top 10 San Francisco Law Firm to pursue a vocation more immediately connected to active participation in community. A life-long writer of poetry and short stories, Frank now spends much of his time creating eco-art from shells, leaves, branches, rocks and many thing else Nature cares to lay in his path. He sees art as critical tool for fostering positive social change, most recently underlined by his participation as a judge in Youth Speaks Poetry Slam. Frank believes art should be shared daily among friends family, transitory and passing, rather than always held aloft as a “permanent” thing to be viewed or witnessed apart from daily life.
