Born in Salisbury, North Carolina, Mary Elizabeth Nottingham was a gifted artist, teacher, and arts administrator who spent much of her career working alongside her husband, Southern regionalist painter Horace Day. She began painting as a child and was formally educated at Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg, Virginia. Upon graduation, she moved to New York to study at the Art Students League. There, she was instructed by Kenneth Hayes Miller and Kimon Nicolaides, and in 1932 earned a fellowship for travel and study in Europe.
