The Artwork of Freda Young is a reflection of the area in which she lives. Visions of the mountains, waterways, wildflowers and landscapes often with human presence, adorn her canvases. Drawing with oil painting would be the primary medium used. Trips into the landscape are often undertaken in all weathers but she feels the sunny day provides the best version of the chosen scene, however. Sketches and notebooks full of colour notes are compiled and with this information bigger works are created later. Whenever time permits, Freda likes to attend life drawing sessions to upskill on drawing.
