This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Beginning her art studies in 1922, Mae Duquette became a painter of portraits, plein-air western landscapes and still life.  She married Charles Medard Duquette, and the couple lived their early years together in Omaha, Nebraska where she took her first art lessons beginning 1922 from Augustus Dunbier.  Moving to California and ultimately settling in San Gabriel, she continued her training with Owen Smith, Will Foster, Merlin Enabnit, Sergei Bongart and Ted Lukits.

In 1932, she exhibited paintings at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. Her portrait of Thomas McKean, first Governor of Pennsylvania and signer of the Declaration of Independence, is a part of the Smithsonian collection in Washington D.C.  Her portrait of Gail Laughlin, first president of the Business and Professional Women's Club, is at the BPW headquarters in Washington D.C.

In the early 1930s she visited and painted in Taos, New Mexico where she visited her art teacher from Nebraska, Augustus Dunbier.  In 1938, she spent time and painted in Tucson, Arizona, and in December of that year won an award from the Society of Liberal Arts exhibit at Joslyn Memorial Museum in Omaha for her landscape titled The Desert-Near Tucson.

She was an honorary member of the California Art Club and a member of the San Gabriel Fine Arts Association.
