Frank Urbanski, (1931- 2011) was MC’s father. Work and family life consumed the years until at sixty-five he retired from a very successful business career, of which most was spent in top executive positions. It was then he began sketching, painting and carving on his own and taking a number of art classes. He said he struggled with creating originals, but considered himself a copycat. He particularly loved creating his own interpretations of the works from the Canadian greats, The Group of Seven and Emily Carr. The following collage is a collection of some of MC’s favorite pieces produced by her father.
