Freya has just graduated with a First Class degree in Fine Art from City and Guilds of London Art School. She lives on a houseboat in London. Freya has a BA in English Literature from the University of Oxford: an education which constantly informs her practice. She has curated and participated in several exhibitions whilst at City and Guilds and has an eclectic experience in the arts: running a local art class for young people, creating and delivering an arts-based curriculum for displaced Yazidi children living in Faneromeni refugee camp in Northern Greece and designing sets at the Oxford Playhouse, Burton Taylor and Hoxton Hall theatres.
Freya’s work has recently been chosen by curator, art director and editor Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff, to appear in the Foundry Art Centre’s (St. Charles, MO) exhibition Global Impact and will soon be exhibited in Milan at ReA Art Fair for emerging artists.
Freya won third place in ‘Sustainability First’s’ Art Competition, as judged by a panel including Jeremy Till, head of Central Saint Martins and Pro-Vice Chancellor of the UAL, Kate Bryan, Head of Collections at Soho House and Arts Broadcaster and Tabish Khan aka ‘The Art Critic’. Her work will be published in a book following the prize: Building from the Corona Crisis Toward a Sustainable Future.
Freya has also been invited to take part in Grayson Perry’s post-lockdown exhibition, following the selection of her work on his Channel 4 programme ‘Grayson’s Art Club’. Freya’s work has been featured in the Evening Standard and the New York Times as a result.
She is currently exhibiting at ReA Arte Fair in Milan, Italy, as well as Cave Space in Pimlico. In the next couple of months her work will be on show at the Bermondsey Project Space and The Tub, Hackney. Freya has also just been awarded the Fondazione Pini award which includes a solo show at the esteemed Milan gallery and house in 2021. Her work is currently featured in Lampoon Magazine.
Freya is a co-founder of gallery and studio space The Tub, Hackney (@thetubhackney).
