When first beginning to paint and draw Fredric was in pursuit of “drawing things the way they really look.” Fred began drawing at seven years old and his skills continued to blossom into middle school and high school years. He went on to receive his B.A. in Studio Art from Mars Hill College in North Carolina.
Over the years Fred has worked in many different media and won awards in a number of competitions. Fred is inspired mostly by the landscape of Mount Desert Island found off the coast of Maine.
Fred and his wife, Carol, have two children and reside in the suburbs North of Minneapolis. They often retreat to a family cabin in Wisconsin.
