Janice Freeman works in a wide variety of mediums, including oil, acrylic, collage, monotype, encaustic, stone sculpture and recently watercolor painting. She has described herself, first of all, as a colorist but that hardly does justice to the elegant designs, intellectual play, and sensual quality of her wide-ranging work. Freeman, who divides her time between studios in Mineral de Pozos, Guanajuato and Houston, Texas, grew up in Pharr, Texas. She traces her love of Mexico and the Mexican people to the adventurous days of her youth in Pharr, when she and her friends rode their ponies back and forth across the river, in and out of Mexico. After graduating from her Bachelors Freeman spent nine years living in Dallas, where she established a studio and exhibited at the Edith Baker Gallery and the Dallas Museum of Art. In 1996, she moved back to Houston, exhibiting there with the Koelsch Gallery and also establishing relationships with the Taos Blue Gallery in Taos, New Mexico and the Paragon Gallery in Los Angeles, California.
