Fraser ‘Fraz’ Williamson is an artist/illustrator whose work ranges from large illustrative soul paintings, which depict dream and spiritual life, to quirky children's books which try to amuse and entertain. Fraser wishes to portray characters and environments that allow for imagination and diversity.
Time spent in Tonga surfing and living with his wife Loisi's family has been translated into many of his educational and trade books. He has worked for many publishing companies and has illustrated many stories and plays for Learning Media's School Journal. Fraser works on commercial projects as well. Anchor milk is one of the best known of these.
Fraser says that he hopes that as children and adults look at his work they can find a place for their own imagination and eccentricity in a world that seems to increasingly worship conformity and 'right' thinking. His work has been used by Storylines on their website and for the Storylines Festival.
Fraser has recently spent time in Spain which laid the foundation for an exhibition of paintings. He continues to divide his time between New Zealand, Spain and Tonga.
