Freddie is a lettering artist and is currently teaching both calligraphy and engraving on glass. She has engraved a few windows for churches in Oxford and Oxfordshire and has an ambition to engrave a cathedral window one day.
Freddie lives in Oxford and this year is again participating in Art in Action, in the lettering tent. In previous years she has been in the glass marquee.
She learnt lettering and calligraphy under William Gardner, letter cutting with Kevin Cribb and sign-writing whilst at art college. She is currently doing a one-year diploma in colour calligraphy with the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society (CLAS).
She is a member of the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society, the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and The Oxford Scribes with whom she exhibits regularly.
Freddie gives occasional workshops to beginners at Falkiner Shepherds in London, at schools and with other organisations.
