Lillie Garretson (1859-1939)
The Garretson Twins, as they were affectionately known by their host of friends, were born in Logan, Ohio, October 3, 1859. Educated in the Detroit Public schools, Lillie and her sister Della (Dillie), always studied and worked together, first in Detroit and later, about 1892, in Dexter.
The sisters went to Belgium and France in 1900 to study and to paint. Settling back home in Michigan, both she and her sister were regularly represented in the Annual Exhibitions of Michigan Artists held at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The artist was a member of the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors, joining in 1908, and also the Scarab Club of Detroit. <
