Freda began her art career in 1996 or so putting graphics on t-shirts. A local artist was impressed with her talent and suggested she take a class and try her hand at oil painting. A series of classes followed which led to experiments as her style evolved into the landscapes she enjoys painting today. Most of her recent work is painted from photographs, including many scenes from pictures of vacation or sentimental locations. She has had her works raffled off at many events and welcomes private commissions.
