South African wildlife and flowers is the embracing theme of Frederike’s work. Painting only what she feels deeply about, the sheer beauty of nature is captured in this exhibition with honesty and originality.

Her training commenced at Rhodes University under Cecil Todd and Walter Battiss where she obtained her degree in Fine Art and subsequently a teaching diploma.
