This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Harriet Gene Roudebush was born in Portland, Oregon on July 6, 1908. She and her family moved to Sacramento, California in 1916. She studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts (1925) and for four years on a scholarship at the California School of Fine Arts.

She was known during the 1930s and 1940s for her etchings of the San Francisco Bay Area, which were sold in tourist shops and art galleries at Fishermen's Wharf. She and her husband moved to Pacific Grove (a well-known California artists' colony) in 1972.

She discontinued printmaking and etching, and instead became a watercolorist, painting watercolors of the Monterey, Carmel, and Pacific Grove areas, until her death on January 2, 1998.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Portland, OR on July 26, 1908. In 1916 the Roudebush family moved to the Sacramento area where Harriet's mother was a school teacher. Following graduation from Oakland Technical High School, the budding artist studied at the CCAC (1925) and for four years on a scholarship at the CSFA. She began etching in 1932 and for nearly 40 years produced hundreds of scenes of the San Francisco Bay area. After her marriage in 1956, she moved to Piedmont and in 1972 settled on the Monterey Peninsula. She then began painting in watercolor and continued in that medium for her remaining years. Her subjects were drawn from the beautiful scenery around her home in Pacific Grove. She died there on Jan. 2, 1998.
