Frank Haddock is a versatile artist who works in any painting medium with ease. His works are characteristically illuminated by a strong light source that gives his art "an inner life and energy". Frank's artwork often focuses on the human figure upon which he arranges a cascade of light that produces interesting arrangements of shapes and colours. The result is a character study that has the spontaneous spirit of a moment caught in time. The freshness of this moment is often complemented by a gentle, unfocused background almost creating a dreamlike atmosphere. In other paintings he intensifies the light by contrasting bright surfaces with dark backgrounds.
