This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Wellington Kansas, Helen Chandler became known as an accomplished painter, illustrator and etcher. She spent most of her career in Los Angeles teaching art at UCLA, and after retirement moved to Pomona where she died in 1961.

When she was four years old, she moved with her family to Louisiana and lived and was raised on the Audubon plantation on Bayou Manchac. By 1898, she was living in the Bay area of California and settled in Berkeley where she studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute. She also studied at the Academie Delecluse in Paris and was a sculpture student of Frederick MacMonnies from 1900 to 1901. She returned to California for several years and then went to New York where she attended Columbia University Teachers College. She also studied with Arthur Dow and Birge Harrison.

Returning to California, she taught at the State Normal School in Los Angeles and the following year, at the California College of Arts and Crafts (1910 to 1914) and then took a position at UCLA where she remained from 1916 to 1959.

Chandler worked in the mediums of oil, watercolor, charcoal, and monotypes and did a wide range of subjects in the eastern and western United States including the Bay Area, Monterey, Nevada, Utah

She was a member of the California Watercolor Society and the Society of Etchers.
