About Fred -
I strive to make my artwork project my feelings and imagination rather than what I physically see. Reality is over-rated.
Trained as an oil painter, I traded mybrushes for a computer stylus when in 1988 I stumbled upon a program called “ImagePro” which later was marketed as “Photoshop.” With the computer, I have been able to create images that far exceeded my talents as a painter or photographer. Digital art has provided me with a platform where I can lose myself while forever learning and experimenting.
Most recently I acquired the capability to glaze my images onto kiln-fired, ceramic tile. Using this technology coupled with my digital art, I was able to create the “We Are Havasu” photo-mosaic mural located on the Shabby Shack. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu; Imade a stylized, mosaic image of the bridge surrounded by photo-mosaic tiles depicting the Havasu residents, visitors, artwork, and events. This is my largest art project to date.
I also love to create abstract images using flame fractal apps. It is amazing to see what colorful abstractions can be created directly from mathematical equations. Yes, I am a nerd.
My award-winning artwork has been displayed in the Laguna Art Museum, San Bernardino Art Museum, the Catalina Island Casino Art Gallery, and various art galleries in Arizona and California.
