Statira Frame was born in Quebec and moved to Vancouver shortly after her marriage in 1892. Largely a self-taught artist who painted in an Impressionist-inspired style, Frame was a member of the British Columbia Society of Fine Arts and the Palette and Chisel Club. She is considered an important participant in the then-burgeoning Vancouver art community and was a close friend and follower of Emily Carr. In fact Carr stayed with the Frame family for two to three weeks upon her return from France, where she and Frame had spent time sketching together.
