Rose Freymuth-Frazier

Artist Statement

"Gender roles, sexuality and societal conditioning have all been explored in my paintings. They tell a story the viewer may recognize, or depict a point of view that may be new to them. Whatever the case, I intend to hold up a mirror in which the viewer will find relevance to their own experience."
