Fred’s art demonstration is done in the unique art form of Sumi (Chinese for pictures ink). The medium selected for his presentation can be in the explosive colors offered using dye on silk or watercolor on rice paper (jeng pi), or depending on time allotted another medium to portray his experience with African wildlife.

The art demonstration includes the personal story of the wildlife encounter he is capturing on his easel together with his description of the medium and art techniques used to portray the action at that moment.

Africa is an awesome place filled with wonder and unusual occurrences. Fred’s hope is to share his passion and first-hand experiences of this beautiful continent with others so that they might walk away with a better understanding of the amazing cultural history and wildlife of Africa.
