Medora Frei is an intuitive abstract artist based in the Midwest. Art has always been her way of composting pain so that something new can thrive from it. Experiences, in all their diversity of intensity and meaning, are what she most portrays with paint. She started creating abstract work in 2018 after a traumatic event. Her passion is to help others heal using art. Frei was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 18 which informs much of her practice. Frei’s work consists mostly of acrylics, often combined with water, allowing each piece to take shape in a natural and free-spirited way— including the occasional use of pastels and pencils. She creates art in her spare time and loves being able to give back to her community through donated works and classes. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN in 2017. In 2023, Frei published “These Are My Flowers: My Story of Composting Trauma Into Colorful Art.” The book is a compilation of art, poems, and memoir-style stories.
