Artist:  Britt Freda


Britt FredaI have been designing, drawing and painting for as long as I have memory. I received a double degree with honors in fine art and writing from St. Lawrence University in New York. In addition, I studied painting, drawing and photography at Lorenzo de' Medici Institute of Art in Florence, Italy and by invitation for intensive residency study at La Cipressaia in Montagnana, Italy under internationally acclaimed South African artists Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky. My work can be found in private collections, galleries, museum exhibitions and publications internationally. I live with my two children on a small island in the Puget Sound.

Artist Statement

Our attraction to beauty is part of our humanity. It connects us. In the natural world, on a canvas, in a song or an architectural masterpiece, beauty has the ability to restore dignity and hope. Art has the power to unite beyond words or explanations or language or cerebral data points or race or gender or socioeconomics or orientation or religion or politics. From a visceral, emotional place, art has the potential to inspire people to care. Only when people care, when they feel emotionally connected, are they compelled to question, to learn, to grow, to change, to take action. And action—heartfelt, united, compassionate action—can change the world.
