Frederick is a true painter of the West, a painter of Arizona. Depictions of horses, cattle, cowboys, images of the old West, paintings that shape the new West, it is all in his blood. Frederick is a native fifth generation Arizonan. He was born in the town of Winkelman yet grew up in Tucson. His Great-Great Grandfather was Sheriff of Tucson in 1867. Continuing with the old west tradition following generations were involved in ranching and mining. “I don’t believe I could paint anything else, it must be in my genes.”
Frederick has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona. He has shown in galleries across the United States and has participated in juried shows from California to North Dakota. He was named Artist of the Year for 2013 by the Friends of Western Art and was selected to participate in the Oil Painters of America National Art Show 2016 in Dallas, Texas. He currently shows at Sanders Galleries in Tucson, Arizona and Fredericksburg Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas.
“It’s been the figure in my work since childhood and the horse and cowboy suit me fine. The horse and cowboy in a ground-sky dichotomy.” He has been influenced by such diverse artists as Whistler, Velasquez, Remington and Kokoschka.
“Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.”
- Bruce Barton
