Original Inspiration

Willa's inspiration stems from a deep bond with the equine spirit.  Her creativity, talent and eye for detail culminates in a one of a kind painting designed to reach deep into one's soul and capture the spirit of the subject.  Willa brings life to the canvas with her interpretation of movement and light, along with her deep bond with each subject.

Willa Frayser Studio - Beyond Paintings

children's book written by Carmel Rowley, Australia; Cover/Illustrations by artist Willa M. Frayser


In 2010, Willa had the great fortune to be asked to collaborate with Australian Author, Carmel Rowley, on her first ever children’s book Danika & Yatimah - From Egypt to the Outback.  Already a successful author of two novels, Carmel created a lovely story for young and old alike.  After discovering the inner vision that Carmel had for her stories, Willa created the cover art, as well as the black and white illustrations for the exciting journey of a young girl, her lovely Arabian mare and their adventures in the Outback.   Recently, Willa worked with Carmel again on the second book in her series titled, As the Crow Flies.

It was such a delight to get to know each character in the story and be able to create the images that would make them familiar to the readers.
