This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The first school teacher in Cripple Creek, Colorado public schools, Mattie Banta was also a painter of landscapes and floral subjects. She was born in Claremont, Illinois and received her education at State University, Bloomington, Illinois.

In 1890, she traveled by horse and wagon from Richmond County, Illinois with her husband Buford Banta, who was a gold prospector. They lived on a ranch in the Bijou Basin, and then moved and built a cabin at St. Peter's Dome. In 1893, they went to Cripple Creek after gold was discovered there.

Mattie Evelyn Banta died in Colorado Springs on December 1, 1956.
