Welcome to Alicia Frese Fine Art and Equine Photography
Alicia has been painting and drawing since she was a child. Her interest in art was first discovered by her mother when Alicia was 2, and she was found painting with a lovely bright red nail polish on her mother’s beautiful green silk bedspread... What’s the problem? Green and red are complimentary colors, after all... Alicia’s art “skills” were channeled into a more productive arena around the age of 9. Her parents always kept her stocked with plenty of art supplies.
Alicia no longer paints on bedspreads and holds a BFA in Painting and illustration from Auburn University, class of 1986. She has won many awards for her equine photography and paintings, at national and international levels. Alicia has also recently published a book with her husband, Bill Klenk. Bill authored the children's book about the journey of their "rescue" dog, while Alicia illustrated the 42 page book entitled, "Rescue, a Dog's Journey". It has received numerous 5 star reviews and is also available at Amazon. Alicia and Bill are donating a percentage of the proceeds to local rescue shelters.
When Alicia is not working on a piece of art, she is an avid equestrian, enjoying the sport of dressage, with her Elite Hanoverian mare, Divine Dream, AKA, DD. She shares her passion with her husband, Bill Klenk and his horse, Mackie, and their 2 dogs and 2 cats. Please contact Alicia to discuss a one of a kind custom portrait of your pet!
