Frank F. Weisberg was born July 21,1942 in Louisville, Kentucky. He graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. He was Chairman of the Board of Prudential Parks & Weisberg Realtors until 2008 when he sold the company.
Weisberg said, “I was always a good doodler. When I turned 40 in 1982, I said to myself—I’m really getting old—and now is the time to start doing some of the things I always wanted to do but never took the time.” He started looking for a drawing class but could not find one at the time. A friend recommended an oil painting class, he took it and is still painting.
Weisberg studied oil painting under John Michael Carter from 1982 through 1985 and further studied oil painting with The Schrodt Art Studio from 1984 through the present. Mary Louise Schrodt, his mentor, passed away in 2001 and Weisberg continues to paint at The Schrodt Art Studio with Schrodt’s daughter, Judy Warren, who is now proprietor of the studio.
Weisberg has won various awards from: The Woman’s Club of Louisville Annual Art Show including various ribbons and two “Best of Show” awards; The Schrodt Art Studio Annual Art Show, various awards and ribbons including the “First Place” award; and awards from the Floyd County Art Museum.

Speed Art Museum’s Café Muse, The Floyd County Art Museum, Actors Theatre of Louisville, The Bank One Gallery, Louisville Visual Art Association, The Huff Gallery at Spaulding University, The Patio Gallery, The Pegasus Gallery at Louisville International Airport and the Artisan Center in Corydon Indiana.
