Dr. Fredlee Votaw - Biography

I love so many mediums...over the last five decades in Stark County I have explored oils, watercolors, multimedia, drawing, photography, and computer graphics. Since my retirement I have focused on oils and multimedia and am excited about exploring different surfaces to create on. I have exhibited works of art in solo, group and competitive shows for over 45 years. My works are in private, corporate and public collections across America. I have won numerous art competitions on the state and national levels and have exhibited in American and International galleries. I have judged numerous state and national art shows and been the keynote speaker at state, national and international visual art/computer art conferences including: Oxford, Cambridge and London, England. My work has been written about and published in many art/computer arts journals and magazines.
