ART ::: PAINTER ::: PRINTMAKER :::
This church-going, conservative farm girl from West Virginia was an unlikely candidate to be one of the great pioneering Provincetown artists. She was a founding member of the artist collective Provincetown Printers who resurrected the Japanese art of white-line woodcuts; a form that holds a sacred place in modern art. Arrived in the 1915 invasion to study with Charles Hawthorne and though she came and went throughout the years, she is buried on Cape Cod.
