Collection: Julie Frederick - Northern Latitudes Gardens and Original Art
Julie Frederick is a multi-talented maker. She is new to the professional art world, though she has been creating works of art in other media for most of her life. She formally began her study of painting three years ago with her instructor and mentor, the famous western artist, Pat E. Baker.
She is, by profession, a clinical therapist working with crisis and trauma. Julie and Pat began hosting weekly art classes as a place for some of Julie's clients to be able to express their emotions in a safe and accepting environment with an instructor that accepted individuals for who they are and not force them into a rote way of painting. Pat became that instructor and mentor. Pat also became Julie's art instructor, mentor and friend.
Julie's favorite subjects are domestic dogs, cats and North American wildlife. She has produced a number of commissioned works some of which are pictured in her portfolio. Julie prefers commission work as she is able to add personality to the painting and provide a treasured heirloom for the owner of the pet. She is presently accepting commission requests. Julie plans to continue to expand and explore art and especially oils.
