Alexandrine McEwen (1876-1955)

Born in Nottingham, Kent, England in October, 1876, Alexandrine, at the age of thirteen, along with her sister Katherine (Kitty), was taken to Germany to complete her education.  Together they immigrated to the United States in 1895 and settled in Detroit.  Their initial art education was received at the Detroit Art Academy, after which the sisters attended the William Merritt Chase School in New York City, going abroad during the summers with the Chase Art Class.

Upon their return to Detroit they helped establish the Society of Arts and Crafts.  Alexandrine was an original charter member of the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors in 1903 as was her sister. 

In furthering their art education, the sisters were also to spend eight years as students at the Charles Woodbury School in Ogunquit, Maine. 

Together, they eventually moved to Arizona and in 1942 to Victoria, British Columbia, where they became members of the “Arts Centre of Greater Victoria.”

Alexandrine McEwen died in Langford, British Columbia on March 25, 1955.
