Biography   Louise Marie Carpenter


Born between Smartsville and Scotia, CA on Aug. 16, 1867 while her mother was on a buggy ride, Louise Carpenter lived in that area until 1878 when the Carpenters built a home in Berkeley. Louise continued to live there throughout most of her life.

Her art studies were in San Francisco under Amédée Joullin at the California School of Design (1892); while there, she was awarded the Avery gold medal for excellence in painting. After the turn of the century, summers were often spent in British Columbia where she painted scenes of that area and the local Indians.

A very private person, she never sold or promoted her works. During the latter part of her life she lived on the Monterey Peninsula, and died there on Oct. 25, 1963.
