After her training, and a couple of years spent in Hollywood, Freymuth-Frazier devoted herself to her other interest - figurative oil painting.

After a master class in painting and several apprenticeships in the US and abroad, Freymuth-Frazier began to develop her own style by drawing on historical references. Her influences range from Balthus and Margaret Keanes to Caravaggio and Rembrandt. This unique combination leads to a kind of hybrid between lowbrow aesthetics and the delicate technique of the Old Masters. Freymuth-Frazier's works are exhibited internationally in galleries and can be found in private collections around the world. She has received attention and reviews from numerous publications.
