Artwork ©️ Frederick Wilda and may not be reproduced.

Fred, a self-taught artist, was raised on a small New England farm in Hadley, Massachusetts. His enthusiasm for the natural world developed when he was a very young child. He began sketching, painting, and carving while still in elementary school. When he was a high school senior, his art teacher convinced him he should make a career in the art field. Art school was not possible for him because of financial restraints, so he decided his only option was to instruct himself. His goal: To become the best artist he could be. Over the years, he established himself in the very competitive field of commercial art, winning many regional and national awards for his ideas and designs. During these years he painted landscapes, wildlife and portraits whenever he could make the time. His medium was usually oil paints, which he learned to master at an early age, but he would occasionally do watercolor or pencil renderings.

Fred has completed a series of over 130 illustrations for reproduction in a 2004 book entitled, The Pegmatite Mines Known as Palermo, written by Robert Whitmore of New Hampshire. His work has also been included in articles in the Lithographie series as well as Rocks & Minerals and Rock & Gem Magazines.

Since 2001, Martin Zinn Expositions has commissioned Fred to illustrate specimens for use in advertising many U.S. Shows. The renderings have been reproduced in magazine advertisements, billboards, and on t-shirts.

Fred was honored to be chosen the “Featured Artist” in the 2004 Mineral and Fossil Show in Munich, Germany. He was also the “Featured Exhibitor” in the 2012 East Coast Gem and Mineral Show.

His originals and limited-edition prints are in many private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Selections of his paintings and prints are in the collection of the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California. Other museums that have a permanent collection of Fred’s originals include the new Marv Rausch Gallery at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts; New Mexico Tech Museum in Socorro, New Mexico as well as the Colorado School of Mines Museum in Golden, Colorado.
In 2016 Fred completed a series of 10 watercolor paintings to be reproduced as wine labels for “Mineral Wines” in Angels Camp, California.

Fred’s passion for art is truly matched by his obsession for minerals. The challenge of illustrating minerals is fueled by the vast amount of subjects available. Fred’s answer to this challenge: “The joy of completing a painting is dwarfed by the< anticipation of doing another.”
