Biography Octavia Roseborough (Hyndman) Arneson
Born in Burlington, Kansas and raised and educated in Oklahoma, Octavia Roseborough Arneson became a prominent artist and teacher in Brownsville, Texas. In 1935, she was one of seven painters who established the Brownsville Art League, and in 1950, in the Leagues newly built quarters, she began the teaching of watercolor classes, which lasted into the last decade of her long life of 101 years.
While teaching, she also continued producing her own art work, which included acrylic and pastel as well as watercolor. As a young girl living in Wichita, Kansas and working for an oil company, she did much china painting, but that was curtailed during World War I when blank china was no longer imported to the U.S.
