Dedicated to the craft and tradition of oil-painting, Frederick is a painter for today who uses techniques of the past to create masterpieces of the future. His atmospheric paintings are dreamlike, glimpsed briefly as we awaken.

“Originally, I was inspired by the Surrealists, and even today my paintings are not realistic portraits of the world about me. My work is about memory; I don’t paint what I see, but the memory of what I have seen”. With Frederick you will have an amazing and enlightening day in his fantastic studio.
