Frank Payne is a little remembered Queensland-born artist who enjoyed a strong following as a fine artist and commercial designer in the 1920s and 1930s. This exhibition traces her early achievements in Queensland with a particular focus on works painted around Cleveland, North Stradbroke Island and Southern Moreton Bay. As a commercial artist Payne was the highest paid woman in Australia in the 1930s, yet her name is now almost forgotten.
