Biography from Gallup House Fine Art:
Louise Emerson Ronnebeck was born in Philadelphia in 1901. She attended Barnard College, the American School in Fontainbleau, France; and Art Student's League of New York, where she was a life member.  Her teachers included Kenneth Hayes Miller and George Bridgman.

On a visit to Mabel Dodge Lujan's ranch in New Mexico, she met the sculptor Arnold Ronnebeck, whom she married in 1926.  In that same year her husband was appointed director of the Denver Art Museum.

A noted portraitist, Louise was also one of Colorado's most important public muralists, working for the Federal Art Project and other institutions.  She executed mural commissions at Denver General Hospital; Morey Junior High School, Denver; Sloan's Lake Club House, Denver; Speer Hospital, Denver; Children's Hospital, Denver; Church of the Holy Redeemer, Denver; Cosmopolitan Hotel, Denver; U.S. Post Office, Grand Junction, Colorado; U.S. Post Office, Worland, Wyoming; U.S.O Building, Denver; and the Denver City and County Building.

In 1931 and 1934 she received awards for work exhibited at the Denver Art Museum, and in 1946 and 1947 she was on the art faculty of the University of Denver. She also taught art at the Colorado Military School (CMS), now Colorado Academy.  She was a member of the Denver Art Guild and exhibited with the group Fifteen Colorado Artists.

She also exhibited widely, including at the American Art Exhibition, New York; Colorado Springs Fine Art Center; Joslyn Museum; Los Angeles Museum of Art, and San Francisco Museum of Art.

In the 1970s she relocated to Bermuda where she also executed several public art commissions.
