Hester Frood was a painter, draughtsman and printmaker. Born in New Zealand, Frood moved to England at the age of seven. Following her studies in England and briefly in Paris, she met the artist David Young Cameron in Scotland in 1906 who was very impressed with Frood’s work and taught her the etching technique. Frood’s work is largely focused on rural landscapes and urban scenes, with depictions of architecture. She exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, and Conlnagi Gallery, London.
