Janice Freischlag's passion "is to bring life to my art with color, style and textures that stimulate all the senses."
Freischlag began her fascination with art in 1989 while living in Wiesbaden, Germany. She started with Bauernmalerei, a German folk art used to decorate furniture, plaques, clocks and other household items. After five years in Germany, she returned to the U.S. and worked to broaden her painting skills. She and her husband moved to Lake Tahoe where she was fortunate to befriend Lola, her mentor and owner of Lakeside Gallery. At that time, Freischlag took up oil painting and was soon getting commissions for pet portraits and more.
She is now accomplished in a wide range of painting media in which she creates images of florals, animals, and seascapes at her Lake Comanche home.
