She started her art lessons at a very young age and painted all day, every day because her family was well-to-do. She was born in Fryeburg in 1884 and died in 1956. She was a member of The Society of Independent Artists and the Salons of America. She exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Ogunquit Art Colony, Portland Museum of Art, and the Society of Independent Artists and the Salons of America.
