This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Balsall Heath, England on July 30, 1848. Georgiana L'Aubinere was the daughter of English watercolorist John Steeple.  After years of art study in England, she took up residence in Paris where she met artist Constant de L'Aubiniére.  After their marriage in 1874, they toured extensively in France and England before coming to the U.S. in 1882.

For seven years they painted and exhibited from coast to coast.  During 1885-86, the couple were in San Francisco and advertised as portrait and landscape painters.  The L'Aubiniéres then moved to Canada. There she and her husband are said to have "taken Victoria by storm" and were commissioned by the government to paint a series of 14 oils for presentation to Queen Victoria.

Upon returning to England, Mrs. L'Aubiniére continued to exhibit at the Royal Academy.  In 1900 she settled on the coast at Cornwall and lived there until her death on Feb. 13, 1930.  Her works are rare.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Georgina de L'Aubiniere was the daughter of John Steeple the watercolorist.  She first painted under the name of Georgina M. Steeple.  She specialized in landscapes and marine subjects.

She lived in St. Quentin, Aisne, France in 1877 and the Rue de Lodeau, Paris in 1882.  She came to London, 1902 moved to Cornwall.  At some time in her life she married and changed her name and then painted under the name of Georgina M. de L'Aubiniere and it's under her best known work.

Her husband Constant L'Aubiniere painted in oils and specialized in landscapes and coastal views. He does not seem to be recorded and research is still being undertaken to gather further information on this most competent artist.

Georgina visted California and Colorado.
