Fred came to Canada in 1949 from Europe at the young age of four. His family settled in the town of Chilliwack nestled in the pristine Fraser Valley in Southern British Columbia.
Teachers and peers recognized Fred’s remarkable artistic talent when he was thirteen years of age. With their encouragement behind him and his own innate love for art, Fred began to experiment with various paintings and mediums. He spent a great deal of time painting murals around his school with a friend. One of his most memorable murals illustrated the history of western art. In grade eleven, Fred’s father supported his son’s artistic endeavors by providing Fred with the tuition for an art course from Minneapolis, Minnesota that he took by correspondence. This course helped sharpen and refine Fred’s understanding of perspective and his use of composition. In grade twelve, Fred decided to pursue a career in art.
