Born in Birkenhead, the daughter of an actuary, her training was at Birkenhead School of Art, Liverpool School of Architecture and Munich Kunstlerinnen Verein. She also studied under Hermann Groeber at Munich. In addition to oils and watercolours, she also produced lithographs and block prints.
Her first local exhibit was in 1899, and she appears to have moved to Carbis Bay in 1914 but there is no mention of her work in the St Ives Times until 1920. In 1924 at St Ives Show Day she exhibited 'effective' pictures of Sennen, Carbis Bay and Conway, and also A Woodland Lane. In 1926 she is recorded as exhibiting at NAG. In Who's Who in Art (1934) she was listed as living at 'Sunset', Porthmeor.
