My name is Frederique.
I was born in winter.
I grew up in a very small town up in the north. I had a childhood full of fantasy, and played in the woods that surrounded our house for days on end. I believed every tree was a spirit, and that the trees would talk to each other, but they talked in a language unknown to mankind. I played at a little wooden church, close to home. The church was built by Vikings, according to old folk tales. Folk tales and fairy tales were not just stories that were made up, there had to be more wisdom to them. Ever since I have had a fascination for what lies beneath and beyond, especially if it seems forgotten. I'm enchanted by myths, shamanism, symbolism, rituals and tradition. I feel most connected when I'm on a journey to the most distant, and forgotten places, locked in between the most majestic mountains. There, where the power of nature is still tangible and you can still sense her magic.
I'm a visual storyteller.
I worked with different fashion designers and brands like
Conny Groenewegen, MYOMY, Ssone, Nescafe and Pickwick.
Different stories of mine have been published in magazines like
Rucksack Magazine, Waterjournal Magazine, Northletters and SCENARIO
I was part of a short exhibition in FOAM Amsterdam, dedicated
to all the finalists of the Olympus Young Talent Award 2019.
Some of my prints are being sold by KIEKIE art.
