This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Paulette Velho, daughter of the artist, from Orlando, Florida:

My mother, Wanda Sonia Bilyieu (nee Glamzo b. 1904 d. 1999) came to America as a toddler in 1906 when her parents left Libau, Latvia, which was under Russian rule, for opportunities in America. Wanda grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated near the top of her high school class and became a graduate of the Parsons School of Applied and Fine Art in NYC. After her graduation, she began a 20-year career as a textile designer, and she also began a 70 year career as a painter. While living in New York's Greenwich Village in the early 1930s, Wanda became acquainted with the well-known Greenwich Village artist, Frank Di Gioia.

In the 1940s Wanda and her husband moved from NYC to the picturesque village of Lake Mahopac, NY. Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city, Wanda transferred her designing techniques into painting beautiful watercolors enhanced by pen and ink. She gave her paintings sunny titles such as "Tulips", "Summer" and "Daisies" and exhibited her work at the Art Association of Putnam County, NY. In 1944 Wanda, being a patriotic American, became a US Army WAC. Around this time, she commissioned two paintings from her friend and famous White Plains artist, Harold Wolcott.

In the 1960s, Wanda became an active member of the Scarsdale NY Camera Club where she won many awards for her black and white color photography. Many of these photographs later became the subjects of her paintings in the 1970's and 1980's.

Wanda also founded a dressmaking school in her home where the art of high couture and fashion was taught to 5-7 students at a time, including her daughter, in her home.

In the early 1970's Wanda moved with her husband to Orlando, Florida where she studied for many years under artist Ralph Bagley. She also sold many of her paintings at local outdoor shows and shops. In 1989 at the age of 83, Wanda was one of four artists featured at the Maitand Art Gallery in Winter Park, Florida, in the show entitled "Collectors Collections. The purpose of this exhibition was to provide area collectors exposure to the work of local artists and opportunity to purchase.

After suffering a stroke at the age of 87, Wanda regained use of her hands and began painting. She continued to paint even into her nineties and commented that personally she liked her own impressionist style. While confined to bed, she continued to draw. She died in Orlando on February 21, 1999.

Wanda's works includes still life, landscapes and flowers. She painted hundred of paintings over her long life, most with rich, beautiful colors.
