This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Agnes Alberta Wilson was born on a cattle ranch near Gilroy, California on Jan. 22, 1888.  Alberta Willson was first the wife of William Spratt. 

She studied at the CSFA and College of Pacific in Stockton.  During the 1930s she was a resident of Los Angeles and, while an employee of the Federal Art Project, did horticultural illustrations. 

As the wife of engineer Richard Lamb, she traveled with her husband to his various work sites.   She made many painting trips to Mexico which provided her with much of her subject matter.  By 1940 she had settled on the Monterey Peninsula; she died in Gilroy, California on Sept. 12, 1950.

Biography from Trotter Galleries:
Prominent San Francisco and early Carmel modernist, Agnes Albert Willson was a painter, lithographer, illustrator, and muralist, who owed much of her early encouragement and guidance to Blanding Sloan.

Painting in oil, tempera, and watercolor, she specialized in horticultural illustrations, and also did landscape and portrait paintings. 

Born near Gilroy, California, Alberte Willson was first the wife of Wm Spratt.  She studied at the California School of Fine Art and College of Pacific in Stockton.  She was the art editor of the Carmelite newspaper in the late 1920s.

During the 1930s she was a resident of Los Angeles and, as an employee of the Federal Art Project, did a series of horticultural illustrations.  Divorced, she later became the wife of engineer Richard Lamb.  She accompanied her husband on work related trips to Mexico, which provided much inspiration for her subject matter.  By 1940 she had settled on the Monterey Peninsula where she remained until her death.

Her studio was in Carmel, California
