Biography from Shelter Island Historical Society & Museum:
Louise Tuthill Hay was born in 1910 in Richmond Hill, New York. As a child and later, she summered on Shelter Island, Long Island, where her ancestors had first arrived in 1730. Tuthills were among the earliest white settlers of Long Island, venturing from Massachusetts to Southold with that town's original founders in September 1640.

Hay became interested in art and antiques at an early age, and traveled extensively with her parents. In 1928 at age eighteen, she attended the Art Students League, during which time John Waters (1883 - ?) painted her portrait. In the late 1940s, Hay moved to Shelter Island, where she painted local landscapes in the lively plein air style of other East End artists, including Whitney Myron Hubbard and Walter Cole Brigham.

She exhibited at local hotels and galleries including on Bridge Street in Shelter Island Heights, where she sold her paintings to hotel visitors, passing yachtsmen and summer residents. She also painted, lettered and varnished boat transoms for the local yachting trade. She earned her primary livelihood for 30 years as an antiques appraiser, and was a member of a local rug-making group called 'The Happy Hookers'.

She moved to East Hampton for a few years in the 1950s, but she soon returned to Shelter Island and lived there until her death in 1989. Hay's paintings are impressionist in style, mostly oil, with some watercolors as well. Her signature was always simply 'Hay'. She painted seascapes, beaches, ospreys and their nests, and boats. Her snow scenes are among the most appealing of her paintings.

Hay's work is found in the Shelter Island Historical Society and Museum, and in many private collections. As most of her paintings were sold to the tourist trade, they are often found up and down the East Coast and elsewhere.
