Linden Frederick grew up in Perth, New York and studied at Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto and Academia de Belle Arte in Florence, Italy.
Frederick paints in oils on linen, creating realistic, sensitive and almost narrative landscape and still life paintings. His paintings are nocturnal visions of rural and small-town America, and imbued with a rich sense of mystery, both ominous and sublime.
Since moving to Maine in 1989, he has been included in exhibitions at the Farnsworth, Ogunquit and Portland museums of art in Maine and in gallery exhibitions in Maine, New York, Texas, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania. He is represented by Forum Gallery in New York.
