Freda was born in Harrow England and studied art and later graphic design and illustration
at Bourneville School of Art, Birmingham, United Kingdom.
She worked in London as a
graphic designer in publishing as well as illustrating two children’s books and teaching art
for several years.

She has always enjoyed life drawing and is convenor of the Oatley 101 Society of Artists
life drawing sketch group.

She is a Fellow at The Royal Art Society of New South Wales.

Freda, who has always been interested in people, both at work and play, demonstrates a
high level of excellence using vibrant colours to depict a great variety of subjects from
landscapes through waterscapes, cityscapes, still-life, floral, portraiture, life painting and

Freda is totally dedicated to her work, when she’s not painting she is thinking about it.
She feels that good draughtsmanship is a basis for successful painting and never stops
drawing. She works in fine detail using strong colour to create pieces, which glow with life
and light. This results in highly successful warm paintings, which demonstrate her ability to
capture and recreate the images realistically. This is reflected by the number of her works,
which are highly sought after by collectors both in Australia and overseas
