Franklin was born in Gloucestershire, England. He studied Fine Art at the University of Wolverhampton from 1990- 93, where he developed a love of stone carving, under the guidance of John Paddison. From there he moved to London to take an MA in Site- Specific sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art, 1993-95.

He is currently a Member of Royal Society of Sculptors

From 2008 until 2018 he was a Member of Royal Birmingham Society of Artists
