Frieda Gossett has always been an artist to some degree . After a childhood of drawing and doodling\, followed by an adolescence in junior high and high school art classes\, unwittingly following Ma rk Ryden's youthful creative arc ("He went to my schools a yea r before me. Dammit\, where are those year books?!")\, Frieda operated as a self taught artist until the charade grew tiresome. In 2001 she began attending Art Center College of Design and became a "professional". 

Today she works primarily wit h leather\, building objects not normally associated with the medium. Birds \, kites and insects are among the subjects she represents. Their lighter t han air\, delicate natures run counter to rugged\, hand-tooled leather bett er suited for boots and saddles. Frieda also does small watercolor portrait s of authors and interesting strangers.

"For BIRDS I have continued to b uild my leather aviary but with a twist: Famous Aircraft. My father was in the Air Force and I came within inches of joining myself. I avoided that horror show but have held on to my dad's passion for airplan es. (All while really hating to fly. Go figure.) I decided to combine birds and planes to mix up natural flight and man-made flying machines." –F rieda Gossett
