U.K. Frederick (Ursula) is an artist based in Canberra, Australia. Her primary modes of art practice are photography, printmaking and video. In 2014 she completed her PhD in Art Theory and Photography and Media Arts at the Australian National University. This practice-based research explored the aesthetics of car cultures in Australia, Japan and the USA.

Ursula has a background in archaeology and her art practice is informed by her interests in material culture and the way people interact with each other and their worlds. Ursula was recently awarded an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award to undertake a three-year interdisciplinary project examining the relationships between creative art practice and contemporary archaeology and heritage.
