About Frank Giordano

Frank Giordano Biography 

As a child in Connecticut, Frank Giordano was often chosen to draw and paint murals in the hallways and classrooms at school. Fascinated by his father's facility for sketching, Giordano honed his artistic skills at home, then exercised them at school while his classmates endured their endless drills. In high school, however, Giordano set aside his art to lay the groundwork for his vocation as a teacher and writer. Four decades would pass before he picked up a brush and a pastel stick.

After a long career as a professor of English literature, business writing consultant and freelance golf and wine writer, Frank R. Giordano, Jr., Ph.D., retired from the University of Houston in Texas to Aiken, South Carolina.  There he rekindled the desire to paint and draw that had lain dormant for years as he built a marriage, a family and an academic career.

Giordano studied painting techniques under Al Beyer at the University of South Carolina and was encouraged by Beyer to create paintings and submit them in local competitions and offer them for sale.  Giordano's first entry in the Aiken Artists' Guild exhibition in 2004, a large rendering of water lilies on the fringes of 'Pop's Pond,' won the First Prize award for acrylic paintings.

Since moving to Pinehurst, Giordano has become a member and officer of the Artists League of the Sandhills.  Working chiefly in acrylics, oils, and pastel, Giordano produces large works of landscapes and golf-scapes, in which the natural rhythms of the land and the brilliant reflections of light result in works of rich color, shape and movement.  His works -- original paintings, posters, note cards, and giclees -- are shown in his studio at the Artists' League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, the Old Sport Gallery in Pinehurst, and the Campbell House in Southern Pines. Many of his golf paintings are featured on the golf architecture website, GolfClubAtlas.com.

Giordano accepts commissions for paintings and murals, especially golf scenes.  If you've made an ace, he can paint the hole.  If you live on a course, he can paint your 'home hole.'  If you've had a memorable achievement or event at a special course, he can preserve the scene.  If you have a 'home course' away from Pinehurst, he can memorialize it for you.


Giordano donates 10% of all his earnings from golf paintings to The First Tee of the Sandhills in the Pinehurst, North Carolina area. Call 910-295-1847 or email Frank at warcinc@nc.rr.com.
