This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born between Smartsville and Scotia, CA on Aug. 16, 1867 while her mother was on a buggy ride. Louise lived in that area until 1878 when the Carpenters built a home in Berkeley. Louise continued to live there throughout most of her life. Her art studies were in San Francisco under Amédée Joullin at the School of Design (1892); while there, she was awarded the Avery gold medal for excellence in painting. After the turn of the century, summers were often spent in British Columbia where she painted scenes of that area and the local Indians. A very private person, she never sold or promoted her works. During the latter part of her life she lived on the Monterey Peninsula. She died there on Oct. 25, 1963. The subjects of her oils and watercolors include still lifes, dogs, Sierra landscapes, pumpkin fields, and redwoods. Member: Carmel AA; SFAA; Berkeley League of FA.

Born in 1867 in Smartsville, California, Louise Carpenter was a painter of landscapes, florals, and western and historical themes, and she exhibited widely in exhibitions including the San Francisco Art Association, the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, 1893.

She spent her early years Smartsville, and in 1878 moved to Berkeley where she studied at the California School of Design in San Francisco. She won honorable mention for oil painting in 1891 and an Avery Gold Medal in 1892.

She spent much time painting on the Monterey Peninsula, and by 1910, had a second home in Pacific Grove. She settled there in 1928.
