Reidunn Fraas

My introduction to painting came at an early age with the guidance of my artist father in Norway, who instilled in me a deep appreciation of art and the creative process. After moving to the US as an adult, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 1999, my move to the Hudson Valley area gave me the opportunity to concentrate on making art, much of my inspiration coming from nature. I have been represented with acrylic paintings at Art Forms Gallery in Woodstock, NY, and mixed media pieces at Jan Collins Selman Fine Art, Falmouth, MA.
