This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was submitted by researcher Carole Allen, who interviewed  the artist's daughter-in-law:

Violet Moore Higgins attended the Art Institute of Chicago in the early part of the 1900s, and was then drawn to the emerging art world in New York where she focused on illustrating children's books and magazines.  Her early illustrations of Pinocchio predate Disney's, and she illustrated other popular books and fairy tales of the time - Heidi, Hans Brinker, The Three Bears, etc.  She was a frequent contributor as both author and illustrator to early children's magazines. 

Working predominantly in pen and ink as was popular for the time and media, some examples of her work can be found in pencil and/or gouache.  Ms. Higgins created the comic strip Drowsy Dick, found in the old New York World newspaper in the 1920s and in the 1950s; she drew a children's feature for the Associated Press called Junior Editors, which ran until her death in 1963.
