Richard A. Freeman, F.C.A., was born in Leicester, England in 1932 and emigrated to Canada in 1955. Upon moving West two years later Freeman found in the Rockies and ranching areas of Southern Alberta and British Columbia the heartfelt subject matter that would influence his painting. Here was the scenery and lifestyle he had dreamt of as a child. Working in oils and acrylics, Richard Freeman’s paintings are based on first-hand experiences of the foothills, ranches and cowboy life of Kananaskis country.
Richard passed away in 1991 from cancer.
In 2015, Richard Freeman’s family gave his son Michael permission to begin selling the remaining signed Limited Edition prints that have been held in secure, environmentally controlled storage for over twenty years. Michael’s hope is that the world will once again take notice of what a brilliant artist his father was and that this, his legacy, will hang in the homes of art collectors and more importantly, in the homes of regular folk who see the same simple beauty Richard did when he captured it on canvas.
