This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on Long Island, NY in 1855.  Ivy was the daughter of artist Juan B. Wandesforde.  She came with her father to San Francisco in 1862.  By 1902 her married name was Kersey and she was living in Eureka; she was then described as "…a musician of note and the first American woman to sing before Queen Victoria."  While working as a florist, she painted still lifes in her leisure.  Her works are rare.  She died of pneumonia in Hayward, California on November 20, 1911.

 Exhibited:  Mechanics' Institute (San Francisco), 1868; San Francisco Art Ass'n, 1873.
