At the core of Franna's work is the immediacy of drawing, whether that is seen in the swift movements of an animal in the wild or the momentary gestures of a person at rest. Drawn to the power of human and animal form, Lusson uses both as a vehicle in her artwork to convey the spirit and aspects of the spiritual journey. She employs a wide range of mixed media in her compositions, including oil paint sticks, ink, charcoal, graphite, and pastels. In portraiture and collage, Lusson's academic background in fashion illustration becomes more apparent, especially in her acute understanding of the body and the deliberateness of her line. She has described her work as being "less literal and more elemental, an expression and an exploration of an often unclear inner reality" and that raw energy is undeniably evident in her depictions of black crows and animals of prey. Lusson's work is part of the permanent collection at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin.
