Coming from a family of artists, it was natural for Janice Fried to express herself visually. A graduate of Parsonís School of Design, Janice works in a multi media style using watercolor, colored pencils, collage, pen and ink and a scratching technique. This style has allowed her to explore the growing sophistication of the childrenís market.
Her illustration work has been used by many publishers both childrenís trade and educational, magazines, newspapers, advertising, inspirational publishers, greeting cards and music books.
Although she considers herself a lifelong New Yorker, Janice Fried now lives in New Jersey with her husband and son.
