About the Artist
Fine Art . Photography . Design & Animation .
Frederikke Tu is a Danish artist, photographer, designer and animator currently living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. For the past nine years she has also been the founder and creative force behind Ojolie.com, using her watercolor paintings and animation to tell stories that are fundamental to everyone’s lives.
“I started painting with watercolors as a child and my long history with the medium has influenced the way I work with color and light in other mediums, including oil and acrylics. I don’t confine myself to a particular style, experimenting with many different artistic expressions and new ways to use a medium and materials.
I am very sensitive to the harmony of color in nature and this intuitively guides my use of color in my work. I draw my themes from how I experience and connect with the world and nature, both how I figuratively see the world and also the way it influences me on a more abstract and imaginative level.
“Birds and other flora and fauna are a common element in my work, both due to their symbolic meaning and my passion for birds, wildlife and nature photography. ”
