"Following a hugely successful first London solo show at the Osborne Studio Gallery, Freddy Paske's career is a promising one. With his own individual style, bold use of colour and knowledge of his subject - he is an exciting artist to watch"

Freddy Paske - Sporting and wildlife artist.
'My style and subjects have varied greatly over the years depending on where I am and what I’m doing. I love urgency in an image. I try to ensure this is reflected in the use of bold compositions and colours, relying on the medium to bring out intriguing details.'
Freddy is a professional artist working between London and Hampshire. Having started painting from an early age, he has developed his talent throughout his previous career with the British Army. In 2014 he exhibited and sold all his sketches from his operational tour in Afghanistan and has since never looked back.
In 2017 Freddy established residencies with the Household Cavalry, Tattersalls Auctioneers and The Jockey Club to create a body of work celebrating the horse.
