Freeland, best known as a painter of portraits , still lifes and historical figures, created much of her work at a studio in Jackson, New Hampshire. For many years she ran the summer Boston Art School.

Freeland was a founder of the Worcester Art Students Club, of Worcester, Massachusetts, which began in 1880. The club was composed not only of talented amateurs, but also of professional artists such as herself, Joseph Greenwood and Frank Darrah. Worcester was also host to several portrait and miniature painters, most of them visitors rather than residents. Among these were Edward D. Marchant, Eliza Goodridge, George Loring Brown, Thomas Edwards, as well as the town's most famous visiting artist, John Singer Sargent.

The Worcester Art Society was formed in 1877, and began to hold lectures and sponsor exhibitions with the Worcester Art Museum, when it began its operation in 1898.
