TIGERS IN OCEANS
Born in Accra Ghana, raised in Southampton UK, and based in British Columbia Canada, with stints in New York City USA and Melbourne Australia, Tigers in Oceans creates narratives from real life in real places.
Tigers in Oceans is addicted to song writing and obsessed with creating melodic armchairs for the storylines to sit.
Why 'Tigers in Oceans'? "It's my simple, human way of beginning to describe the infinite power of God. A Tiger, however powerful, however wild, is completely tamed when placed in the middle of an ocean. We are the Tiger, God is the Ocean".
The focus behind this passionate drive is to create art for “the people”. More than being a creative artist or its name, Tigers in Oceans is better described as being a type of person — a mindset — a collection of stories and emotions.
Instead of trying to fit Tigers in Oceans songs into a classifiable genre, it is easier to define them by their subject matter — freedom, equality, independence, love. Tigers in Oceans serves “the people” by delivering art others will feel and identify with.

ZEALOUS ART TUTORIAL
Freda was born and raised in South Africa and is now living in Surrey, British Columbia. She started painting after receiving an Easel as a gift in 2010. Since then Freda has been on a journey exploring different techniques and subjects in her studio at home using a variety of mediums when creating art. Her subjects are a creation of a moment, which easily has her moving from one style to the other, from one subject to another. Her zeal for life is visible in the bright colours she uses.
Freda enjoys inviting friends over to paint with her. after a few informal painting lessons while listening to music, enjoying snacks and drinking wine the idea of painting pARTieswere born!
Freda started off hosting these parties at her home and now goes out to her customers in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver area. These At-Home-Painting-pARTies turned out to be a lot of fun, great for birthdays, baby showers, a girls night in and even team buildings.
The instant feeling of accomplishment after a pARTy and going home with a piece of art in hand have had many returned. Some have enrolled for more formal art lessons and many talk about their new appreciation for original art. Freda is very proud to say that their new love all started with a fun night of entertaining art instruction.
