This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Buffalo, NY on April 16, 1903, Marian Brackenridge, at age six,  moved to Pasadena where she grew up and attended public schools.  In 1921 she began to study sculpture at the Art Students League in New York City under Leo Lentelli and, after returning to Pasadena, continued under Alexander. P. Proctor.

In 1925 she moved to Santa Barbara where she assisted Ettore Cadorin for several years.  The years 1936-41 were spent in San Francisco; she then moved to Sonoma, CA where she remained until her demise on March 17, 1999.

Her sculpture was influenced by the 16th century Italian sculptors.

During WWII she painted a few oils which were in museum exhibitions.
