"I grew up in a house full of pets, " he says. My mom had a degree in fine arts and although my dad was a lawyer, he was a weekend painter. So his love of animals and art was sown early (also inspired when he received a gift of Roger Tory Petersons Field Guide to the Birds) and he attended Willamette University with a major in art and a minor in biology. "So I could know my subjects outside and in, " he says. He put that education to good use as he embarked on a fine art career that would allow him to do what he enjoyed most; explore and learn.Frederick built his house in the middle of the Oregon wilderness and filled it with birds and animals. Hes hiked and camped in mountains and forests throughout the northwest U. Central America and East Africa. He knows the lakes and mountains as well as he knows the plains and deserts, not to mention almost all the creatures who live there, from the smallest bird to the largest elephant. And he will paint them on whatever size canvas suits them best. In addition to his peaceful views of animals in their natural habitats, he is also known for his paintings many different sizes and shapeseach chosen to best suit his perfectly balanced images of wildlife and wilderness.
