Janice Freeman works in a wide variety of mediums, including oil and acrylic painting, collage, printmaking, encaustic, stone sculpture, water color, and — most recently –soft sculpture. She has described herself, first of all, as a colorist. For the first nine years of her career Freeman lived in Dallas, where she established a studio and exhibited at the Edith Baker gallery and the Dallas museum of art. In 1996, she moved to Houston, exhibiting there with the Koelsch gallery, and establishing relationships with Taos Blue Gallery of Taos, New Mexico and the Paragon Gallery in Los Angeles. Freeman has exhibited her work widely in the United States, Mexico, and Spain. In 2009, the Museo Regional de Querétaro mounted a solo exhibition of 27 new paintings by Freeman. The show, titled Historias, Sueños, y Travesías, accompanied by a catalog and an introduction by David S.
