The first mention of the artist in St Ives was in 1895, when on STISA Show Day she exhibited a portrait Grief under her maiden name of Bucknall.  Together with her husband John Christian William DOUGLAS, she lived at 10 Park Avenue, St Ives, both of the artists working from the Skidden Hill Studios. Three of her portrait miniatures were exhibited in March 1909 in St Ives: Miss Chadwick; Miss Kitty Hain and Miss Fourdrinier. She also painted still life scenes in oil and watercolour.
