This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hedwyn Sanders (1885-1971)

She was born Mayme Moore on December 25, 1885 in East Point, Georgia to Joshua Britton Moore and Mary F. Holifield.   Mayme Moore began painting when she was five years old.  Mayme studied art at Cox College in East Point, Georgia, Chicago Art Institute and with art groups in Taos and California.  In her later years she was virtually blind but had her sight restored by surgery.  For many years prior to the loss of her sight, she taught and painted in her studio at Lake Worth and her home at 2509 West Bowie, Fort Worth.

Mayme Moore married Arthur Hedwyn Sanders in 1908.  (Location of the marriage is unknown at this time).  Arthur Hedwyn Sanders was born November 10, 1879 in Chicago, Illinois to Fred Sanders and unknown mother.  Helen Virginia Sanders was born January 8, 1913 to Mayme Moore and Arthur Hedwyn Sanders in Fort Worth, Texas.  Helen died April 17, 1933 in Fort Worth, Texas from pneumonia.  She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Fort Worth.

In 1936 Mayme and her husband moved to Lake Worth where she had her own art studio by the lake.  Mayme Moore Sanders used her husband's middle name as her artist's signature - Hedwyn Sanders.

Arthur Hedwyn Sanders died February 7, 1951 in Fort Worth, Texas.  Upon his death he was the owner of an office supply company and former chairman of the Tarrant County Democratic party.   Mayme Moore Sanders died October 3, 1971 in Fort Worth, Texas.  At the time she was survived by a nephew Joe C. Moore and sister-in-law Mrs. George Moore both of Sacramento California.
