Biography from Martin-Zambito Fine Art:
Blanche Morgan Losey studied at the University of Washington and was a member of the Women Painters of Washington for forty years.  She was a member of the Northwest Watercolor Society and the National Association of Women Artists, New York.  Her work of the 1930’s and early 1940’s was primarily in watercolor, executed in a crisp, hard-edged Precisionist style. She designed stage sets and costumes for many local theatrical productions including those of the  Federal Theater Project.

In the mid-1940’s she turned to Surrealism and produced a body of work influenced by European artists such as Salvador Dali and Giorgio DeChirico.

In addition to her activity as a painter, Losey was one of the leading Interior Designers in Seattle. She was the Director of Frederick & Nelson’s Design Department for several decades and was national President for the American Society of Interior Designers.

Her work included projects for the Seattle Opera House and Century 21, and Seattle’s World’s Fair.  She exhibited with the National Association of Women Artists in New York City, the Oakland Art Museum, Seattle Art  Museum and other regional venues.

Losey’s paintings are in the collections of the Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, the Museum of History & Industry and University of Washington, Special Collections.

She died while vacationing in Spain.

Her work is included in the following publications;
