The energetic vibrations of Iona take shape and form in the exhibition’s paintings.
Fraser is an award-winning artist and member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, with work in international collections.
She is also a registered nurse with training in art therapy, and likes to experiment with various techniques.
While on Iona, the artist used a variety of media and methods to describe her experiences. She took her sketch book on outings and paused to draw and take photographs. Plein air watercolour paintings were also completed on excursions. On stormy days, she worked inside on her many-layered veil paintings. One memorable evening she completed touch drawings in the Iona Abbey while listening to an organ recital of Bach music.
