This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born into a family of extraordinary talent, she became one of the few professionally trained 19th century female artists. She was the daughter of Henry Mount, who was an academician at the National Academy of Design, and her uncles, Shepard Alonzo Mount and William Sidney Mount, were also well known artists. She was raised in Stony Brook, Long Island and her father died when she was a child. Her uncle William took a particular interest in her art, and as a young woman, she spent much time working with him in his studio. He talked to her of New York's art scene and encouraged her to go to exhibitions in that city. In the 1860s, she made frequent trips and stayed at 54 West 10th Street, opposite the studio building where she later took lessons from James M. Hart. She was his only female student.

Most of her serious work she did between 1860 and the late 1890s, and after the 1880s, she rarely left home where she lived with a brother and sister. In 1910, she suffered a debilitating stroke and was confined to a wheelchair until her death in 1920

Her landscape paintings were primarily of the area around Stony Brook and often included the family home. Most of her paintings she gave away to family and friends.
