Freda Lombard

Artist and Owner of Zealous Art

Freda believes everyone has an inner artist and if you slow down, take a deep breath and paint without judgment, that you too, will discover your inner artist. Freda will encourage you to make mindful marks, breathe and have fun while you drag the brush over your canvas! Freda curated her own art education and although she enjoys fine art she always reminds her students that she teaches fun art, not fine art! Freda was was born and raised in South Africa and is now living in Surrey, BC Canada. Freda started painting after receiving an easel as a gift in 2010 and immediately after starting to paint, she gave friends brushes to paint with her. Fast forward a few years and today thousands of people from all over the world have painted with Freda in her studio, on location in her community and online. Freda facilitates in person Painting experiences for small groups and large corporations and is currently in school finishing her Therapeutic Arts Practitioner certification through CIIAT.
