The daughter of Leonard RICHMOND, her work is first mentioned in 1944.  She may have come to St Ives to study under Leonard John FULLER at the St Ives School of Painting - her father not having settled in the town until 1946 - and she worked from No. 4 Porthmeor Studios, specialising in still-life in oils. She and her father appear to have left St Ives in 1949.
