This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A staff artist and designer for Rookwood Pottery Company in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1884 to 1905, Anna Valentien was also a sculptor, painter and teacher who played an important role in the Arts and Crafts Movement in San Diego.

She was born in Cincinnati and studied with Frank Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy, and in France with Rodin at the Academie Colarossi. She married Albert Valentien, whom she had met in Cincinnati when they both worked for the Rookwood Pottery Company. In 1908, the couple settled in San Diego, California, and established the Valentien Pottery Company, whose low-relief pottery with art nouveau designs is credited as launching the Arts and Crafts Movement in San Diego.

Anna Valentien also painted portraits, landscapes, and florals, and taught at the local Normal School from 1914 to 1916 and the Evening High School from 1917 to 1938. Donal Hord, who became a famous sculptor from San Diego, was her student.

Memberships included the La Jolla Art Association and the San Diego Fine Arts Society. Exhibition venues included the Atlantic Expo of 1895, the Paris Salon, and the San Diego Academy of Fine Arts.
