Biography from Spencer Jon Helfen Fine Arts:
Leah Hamilton was born Leah I. Rinne in Finland in 1906, and immigrated to California in 1921. She earned an M.A. degree from the University of California, Berkeley.

After traveling and studying in Europe, she was a teacher at Dominican College in San Rafael, California, during which time she married and became Leah Rinne Hamilton.

Hamilton subsequently spent most of her career in San Francisco, where she made her home on the northern slope of Russian Hill. She was president of San Francisco Women Artists, and also was active in the California Watercolor Society and the San Francisco Art Association.

In 1939, Hamilton was included in the “Fourteen Bay Area Watercolorists” show at the San Francisco Museum of Art. Between 1935 and 1958, Leah Hamilton’s work won prizes in numerous other exhibitions at both the San Francisco Museum of Art and the San Francisco Art Association.

Leah Rinne Hamilton passed away in Oakland in 1960.
