DAVID C. FREDA
Jeweler - Enamelist - Metalsmith - Artist - Naturalist
I probe the world of animals for my imagery. Bird watching, taxidermy, falconry, scuba diving, rock climbing, and mountain biking, experience has educated me to the point where I can express the natural world in an artistic sense. Some compositions feature realistic "renderings" of animal forms, others are abstractions suggesting a theme with unexpected or surprising results. I share a kinship with past artists whose intimate knowledge of the natural world also provided them with their concepts.
