Born in Manchester, trained at Manchester School of Art and Colarossi's Atelier, Paris; Medallist at Kensington.
This is presumed to be the artist who exhibited two paintings, A Summer Holiday and The Lacemaker, at the St Ives Show Day of 1911, exhibiting again in 1913. She partnered Emily ALNUTT in the Rose Lodge Studio for the latter exhibition (1913) and in 1915 moved with Allnutt to live and work in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Buckman notes her final home at Hindhead, Surrey.
She is probably the Miss Nicholson (St Ives) who displayed and sold Moonlight Pastel at Newlyn in 1910 (See Hardie p59: Defining Exhibitions), one of only three sales that were made in that exhibition.
