This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ina Campbell Uhthoff, born in Kirn, Scotland, grew up in a prosperous family in Glasgow.  She obtained a diploma from the Glasgow School of Art, studying with Charles Macintosh.  In 1913 she visited friends in the Kootenay area of British Columbia where she met Edward Joseph Uhthoff, whom she married in 1919.

After World War I, they settled in Crawford Bay in the Kootenays.  In the mid-1920s, she left her husband, established herself in Victoria, and sent for her two children.  By 1937, she had established under the British Columbia Department of Education the Victoria School of Art, which was a response to her perception that Canadian art was too conservative.  She was also active in developing the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

In the 1950s and well into the 1960s, Uhthoff was the weekly arts reviewer for the Victoria newspaper, The Daily Colonist.  During this time, she continued to exhibit her work in Victoria and at the Vancouver Aat Gallery.  Among her close firends were Katherine Maltwood and Emily Carr, with whom she worked to establish absttact art in public acceptance.

Not only is Uhthoff's work as an art teacher and arts organizer overlooked today, so is the art that she produced and exhibited throughout most of her life.  Her style of art is more a part of twentieth century modernism than that of most of her contemporaries.
