Born in Redruth, Cornwall, she was the wife of Reginald Francis REYNOLDS and specialised in colourful and decorative still life paintings of fruit and flowers in oils. Although based in London after her marriage, she returned to St Ives at intervals from 1916.
The studio the couple shared is featured in Francis John ROSKRUGE's 1929 version of the Map of St Ives Studios (see Tovey 2003 p14 for reprint).
