Works of Art

Frieda Fraser was a amateur artist who sketched most of her life. While she drew only for herself and her friends, the items in this series, and scattered through her correspondence and notebooks elsewhere, demonstrate more than a little talent. Dr. Fraser had a good eye for form (human, animal, or nature) and the small events in life that amused her. Her letters to Bud are a particularly revealing source of her artistic humour.

The earliest sketch here is one she made as a child on 30 September, 1906 and the latest date from 1964. Included are two fine watercolours, untitled but probably of the Go Home Bay area where she often vacationed. Dr. Fraser also experimented with block printing and there are several examples in this series.
