Biography from Adam's (James Adam & Sons Ltd.):
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

While avoiding the sniping on Baggot Street Bridge, Estella met a kindred spirit, Kathleen Goodfellow, and together they enlisted in Cumann na mBan, the auxiliary branch of women volunteers.  By 1918 every working-class woman was a member of Cumann na mBan.  So powerful the organization developed, and the fastidious Countess Markievicz was at their head.  Phyllis Ryan, later to be Seán T. O'Kelly's future wife, drilled the unit that Estella was attached.

After training when most members were sent down the country, Estella stayed and gave her support in Dublin.  A period of uncertainty reigned.  Ireland was experiencing the duplicity of Lloyd George and his colleagues, and their prevarication; and houses were subjected to close searches for arms.

Estella surprised her parents by taking an inordinate interest in gardening and she raised superb heads of lettuce for family consumption.  Beneath the lettuce heads were concealed supplies of ammunition for Sinn Féin volunteers and she would deliver these to an agent, whom she called "The butterman" in Baggot Street.  He taught her how to fire a revolver which they practiced in his backyard.  "The Butterman" was later arrested, not for his revolutionary activities but for his habit of watering the milk.  The portrait of his wife, a good natured, benevolent plump woman, hung in Estella's Studio until her death.
