This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hortense M. Gordon was an abstract painter and technical teacher in her native Hamilton, Ontario for over 30 years.  She was also an active member of Canada's first English - speaking abstract group, Painters Eleven.  Unlike others in this highly visible group who were younger than she was and active in Toronto art circles, Hortense Gordon had spent over 30 years teaching art in a technical school in the city of Hamilton, Ontario.  But she had also studied, exhibited regularly, and worked tirelessly for recognition as an artist during her teaching career.

With a background in arts and crafts, she had little formal art training but had taught herself principles of applied design. 

She was born November 24, 1886 in Hamilton, and was the younger daughter of Sarah Louise Crompton, English - born daughter of Thomas Crompton, a well - known Primitive Methodist minister in the Toronto area, and James Harvey Mattice, of United Empire Loyalist stock, who worked as a clerk and then as Hamilton agent for the Toronto Globe.

The family lived with moderate means on Catharine Street in central Hamilton, and Hortense showed early art talent, which was encouraged.
