One of America’s leading art publishers, Bentley, sold his art prints worldwide and later he had success with Washington Green in the UK.
Fred continues to draw and paint, on a variety of subjects in a range of mediums, landscapes, cityscapes and railways feature strongly. He works from his home studio in Salisbury.
One of his biggest projects to date is the Milford Bridge Mural in Salisbury.
