Biography of Freda Young, Artist
2008 - to 2011 studied for a Diploma in Acrylic and Oil Painting.
2002 Diploma with distinction in Fine Art "Understanding Art and the History of Art".
I have attended many Master Classes with professional artists over many years. I have attended the Life Drawing Sessions at The Dock, in Carrick -on-Shannon and at The Moth in Cavan town
My art is mainly rural based. A visual record of the changing seasons and the light that can be observed on the landscape. Work is mainly recorded out of doors with watercolour and some highlights in pastel. With this information my paintings are completed back home in oil or acrylic. Still life and floras are favourite subjects also.
I hope that when people see my work that it will help them appreciate the beauty of our natural landscape.
