With her husband Frank VER BECK, she came to St Ives in 1913. By November 1914, The St Ives Times reported that the couple had been working in the town "since last mid summer". Her daughter from a previous marriage was the artist Theresa Rion ABELL.
American by birth, she was a STIAC member from 1914-15, and wrote and illustrated children's books as well as painting. After she and Frank parted, she married Alpheus Hervey in 1921. She died shortly afterwards in Bermuda.
