This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography was submitted by Mary Averett, whose source was written information sent to her by the artist. 

Born 16 September 1924 in Lexington, North Carolina, I grew up during the Depression. My father died when I was 5 years old. Mother went to work, and I was raised by a grandmother who lived with us. She died when I was eight and she was 88. I always loved old photos, even then, and later based the work for which I became well-known on them ("Family Album").

I went to Ringling Art School in Sarasota, Florida for two years and then to New York City where I worked in the famous House of Heyduryk, first in the workshops, and then in the show room, meeting many famous artists, architects, composers, writers from Europe who had fled the Nazis. After a few years in New York, I traveled several times back and forth from Taos and New York, staying months or years in each place. During this time I married and had a son.

In 1953, I went to live in San Francisco where I stayed for many years, showing at Gump's and at the Charles Campbell Gallery. During this time, I started "Family Album" the series that led to my winning the Ford Foundation Purchase Award and Honorable Mention at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C.

I had many one-man shows during these years, and won 1st prize at the Mead Corporation "Art Across America" competition with the painting "Brother Home on Leave". In 1971 I moved to Spain where I still live in an old farmhouse outside a small village of about 85 people. I now show exclusively with Galeria Alfredo Vinas in Malaga, Spain, and have works in several Spanish museums (Zamora, Marbella and in the Picasso Foundation in Malaga.)

In 2001, I had work shown at Arco, the international art fair in Madrid.
