This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Lillian Bertha Hulsmann was born on 25 October 1885, probably in Chicago, IL, a daughter of Henry and Albertina Glende Hulsmann. She married Otto Miller about 1910 in Chicago. Her occupation in the 1910 Chicago census was a self employed "artist, landscape". There is a great similarity between her work and the work of her father, Henry Hulsmann, a prolific Chicago artist, so it seems likely that she was his student. Differentiating Lillian's work from that of her father is difficult when she signed using her maiden name. Much of the information about Lillian comes from her granddaughter:

"Grandma was born on Oct. 25, 1885 and died on August 8, 1966. I am not sure where she was born, but think it probably was in Chicago. Her middle name was Bertha.  She didn't choose the name Lample.  She painted for a wholesale house in downtown Chicago. I used to go there, when I was little with my mother, to deliver her paintings, but can't remember the name of the company.  They were the ones that chose the name Lample.  She sold pictures to them for many years, and also sold to private parties under her own name.  I just checked with my brother, (name removed), and he remembered that the company wanted her to have a fictitious name so customers wouldn't buy direct from her." 
Lillian Hulsmann worked as an artist in Illinois from the early 1900s into the early 1960s. She painted under the names Hulsmann, Miller and Lample. Much of the work retained by her family is signed "L. Miller". Her work appears to have been mainly landscapes, using oils on canvas.

She worked both independently and for a Chicago based wholesale business. There is no record of exhibitions of her work. She is likely the artist "Lample" who is listed in Davenport's Art Reference and Price Guide and could also be the "L. B. Miller" listed in that reference.
Lillian B. Miller died on 8 August 1966 of a heart attack at Elmhurst Hospital in Elmhurst, IL.
