Born in San Francisco, Mary Herrick became known primarily for her floral still lifes, which are difficult to find. She learned to draw from her father, William Herrick, and when the San Francisco School of Design opened in 1874, she was the first student to enroll.

She married Colin Ross and the lived in San Francisco until 1914 and then moved across the Bay to Piedmont where she is buried in the Mountain View cemetery.
