Frederick dedicates his time to art. He produces work from his studio which is on the top floor of his house. It is surrounded with large glazed windows, with plenty of natural light from the north and eastern sides. A carpenter’s workbench serves as an extension to the easel, with enough workspace for palette, brushes and paint box
.. a painting is essentially a flat surface covered with colours assembled in a certain order" (Maurice Denis)
Frederick is a truly versatile artist; he refuses to allow himself to be limited by the type of work he pursues, being equally at ease with figurative, still life, and expressive work. He holds to the belief that the work of an artist should be an experimental experience.
Frederick considers himself a post modernist but disassociate himself from the shocking pseudo-intellectual modernists. Colour is the dominant and forceful characteristic of his works. Themes favourite of Frederick are figures, beautiful faces, and the Malta's urban art! Beauty frequently inspires great portraits. God created good and beautiful things for us to enjoy even though we seem committed to destroying them and destroying ourselves. Frederick captures the delight of creation, with touches of light; with bright but serene colours.
The artist has developed an elegant style of maximizing the potential of the palette: an alchemist on the palette; mixing hues into new blends; employs colours "to personify my work"
