Sheena’s Art

Born in Montreal and raised in nearby Hudson, Sheena Fraser McGoogan painted from an early age in the studio of her artist grandfather A.M. Pattison. He was a member of the Beaver Hall Group and sold many paintings of Quebec landscapes and Montreal buildings. Her Scottish grandfather, William Fraser, was also a talented artist. He became an architect and created the Robert Burns Memorial in Mauchline, Scotland, and the School of Household Sciences building in Toronto, along with many other important buildings. He also helped design Halifax harbor after the explosion of 1917. Building on this heritage, Sheena studied art in Montreal. She completed an art degree with Canadian landscape painter Gordon Smith, graduating from the University of British Columbia with a double major in painting and printmaking. There, she won a scholarship to spend a summer painting at the Banff School of Fine Art. These days she works with acrylic paints on canvas and uses bold colors to create a mood and an excitement.
