This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Tuscola Township, IL on Sept. 23, 1862. Levina Baker grew up in Illinois and moved with her family to Kansas in the early 1880s. Opting for an art career, she studied at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and PAFA (1885). She then came to California and settled in Oakland. About 1902 she wed artist Edward Rufus Hill. After her husband's death in 1908, she continued to live in Oakland until 1914. After a brief stint in Vacaville, she moved to Santa Cruz County to teach at Boulder Creek Union High School. She married a local farmer, Warner Porter, in 1921. She died in Santa Cruz, CA of cancer of the liver on March 24, 1922. Her rare works include stagecoach hold-ups, the Indians of Yosemite, floral still lifes, and portraits on porcelain. Exh: Mechanics' Inst. (SF), 1889; SFAA, 1893-94. In: San Mateo Co. Historical Society; Calif. State Capitol; Society of Calif. Pioneers; Athenian-Nile Club (Oakland).
