This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was received by AskART:

Recently my sister and I discovered your website, and recognized one of our grandmother's distinctive North African style paintings, or print. Thought you might like to know she was born in London, England in 1887, and died in Germany in 1961.

She studied at the Royal Academy of Art in London, and produced hundreds, maybe a thousand, works. She married and soon found herself in Egypt, and Algeria, a wife and mother of three. My grandfather passed away in 1935, and she continued her work up until her death. She stayed with her daughter Joan Knox in Virginia, and abroad in Europe and Algeria. All the while, she turned out painting after painting.

Many of her oil paintings depicted Algiers and other sites in North Africa, were framed in her original framework, complete with gold leaf application, as learned from an Italian craftsman. She also made prints, using an old process. I think it involved wood blocks, but I could be wrong. Twice, once when Smyrna burned, and once when lost during a flight, entire collections of paintings of hers disappeared.

There seems to have been some knowledge of her in the central Pennsylvania town of Carlisle in 1950. A reference was made to an article about her in the Philadelphia Enquirer Magazine- issue of May 14, 1950. This is one of only two exhibits of her work that I've heard of, the other being in Foxcotte Tower in England (sorry- no location). That was in 1990 or so.
