This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Waterford, Connecticut, Bessie Hazen became a long-time resident of Los Angeles, known for her landscapes, sometimes with figures. As an artist, she sought visual experiences with nature and traveled widely in California, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Mexico. Titles of her paintings included "The Little Colorado, Arizona", "Storm in the Grand Canyon", "Mohave Desert", "Cliffs of Mexico", and "Yellow Sage, Lake Tahoe". Her mediums included watercolors, oils, block prints, monotypes and etchings.

She was raised in Canada and studied art at St. John, New Brunswick, and in the mid 1890s, she moved to the United States where she studied in New York and Boston.

In 1906, she took a teaching position in Glendora, California and attended UCLA, which then was called the State Normal School. moved to Los Angeles and continued studying at the University of California. From 1909 to 1910, she attended Columbia University in New York, earning a Teaching Degree and an art diploma. Returning to California, she began a long art teaching career at UCLA, becoming an assistant professor in 1925. After her retirement in 1933, she taught extension classes for UCLA almost until her death in Los Angeles on March 11, 1946.

She was a member of numerous California art societies including the California Art Club, California Society of Etchers, and the California Watercolor Society. She exhibited with the Artists of Southern California, Women Painters of the West, and at the Arizona State Fair where she won honors in 1916, 1917 and 1919.
