FRIEDA VAN DE POLL
I am a visual artist. I paint, I draw, I wield my scissors and needles and I make objects.
Trained in my hometown Amsterdam, Holland, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, I am based in England, Oxford and Coventry since 2004.
In my work I create a habitat that has a fairytale atmosphere, populated by weird and wonderful composites of ceramics and textiles, and collages of cuttings from my life on watercolours.
I have extensive experience in teaching (Coventry University, Adult Education, Pilgrims Teacher Training) and a teaching qualification in Higher Education.
