In 1928 ‘Scribner’s Magazine’ named her as one of the nation’s foremost women artists…

She died in Carmel having left a great legacy to California art as a teacher, organizer, and painter. Working in pastel, tempera, oil, and watercolor, she painted sand dunes, wharf scenes, adobes, landscapes, and the wind-swept cypresses of the Monterey Peninsula.

The artist’s sense of color is a joy. She is not afraid of her
brush, and her paintings show the Carmel coastline as it is.
