Fred is a Happy Old Artist.

When I was 12 I had the opportunity to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art in New York City. This was a very powerful influence on my life. I always liked making pictures. I also lived in many places while growing up. Galveston,Texas, Balboa, Panama Canal Zone, Key West, Florida, Washington, D.C., Fort Monroe, Virginia in the space of six years. In 1956 I was able to attend classes in art at the Museum of Fine Art Houston. I then studied with several artists at the Art League of Houston and attended many workshops, classes and life drawing sessions there. The people at the Art League of Houston were all very kind and helpful to me. They had many excellent teachers that I was able to study with.
I was able to study with other fine artists such as Chester Snowden. He was a nationally known artist and art instructor and a friend of Ima Hogg. I also studied with Dick Turner who was a very fine artist. Dick had a good reputation for his art. Artists came from all over the United States to study with Dick Turner.
Joseph Silhavy was another fine artist I studied with. He did beautiful paintings of horses and was an artist for the movie industry.
As my art skills improved I was able to sell my work at art shows and fairs.
Some of the shows I was in at art fairs were yearly at the Astrodome in Houston, The Columbus, Texas Art Fair, The County Fair at Rosenberg, Texas and the yearly Peggy Madden Art Festivals at Meyerland Plaza in Houston, In 1961 I met Margaret Dryer of Dryer Galleries and she graciously consented to show and sell some of my work. I took part in several shows at her gallery. Margaret Dryer was a well know artist and art teacher. She had a gallery on San Jacinto Street. Margaret sold some of my paintings.
In 1978 I opened my own art and photography studio and I did art and photography for several publications. In 1982 I did art and photography for the University of Texas Health Science Center Houston in the Media Production Center. I covered events such as The International Golf Tournament at the Woodlands for the Irish Tourist Board. These pictures were published around the world. My work was placed in the permanent collection of the Art Museum at the University of Southern California at Riverside.
In 1990 Yolanta Thompson invited me to have a one man show at Yol Art Gallery. I had 118 paintings in this show and over 100 people attended the opening. I sold a number of paintings. It was a good show. Yolanta and I became good friends and we remain friends to this day. I have shown my work in several of her shows. Her gallery and frame shop is located at 1904 West 18th Street, Houston, Texas 77008.
During over 50 years I have been an artist I have donated my time and my art to many good causes.
I donated paintings to neighborhood auctions to raise funds for various good causes to benefit our local parks.
One auction raised enough money to help the parks to fund their activities for over five years.
I taught Basic Computer Skills for Seniors as a volunteer at Bayland Park for several years.
I was a photographer for the Children’s Fourth of July Parade.

I did slide shows and talks with music and slides for the Alzheimer Day Care Center.

Prints can be purchased in several sizes and also can be framed, matted and glazed by Fine Art America.
There is a 30 day guarantee and if they are not satisfactory your money will be returned including shippping.

I still paint, in watercolor, oil and with the computer and I still take many photographs.
I have many good friends in the arts in Houston and also many of my customers have become my friends.
