This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of landscapes, and Indian subjects including residents of Mexico, Katharine Benepe, who also painted under the name of Katharine Shackelford, was born in Fort Benton, Montana and settled in Glendale, California.  There she was a member of the Los Angeles Art Association; the San Diego Art Guild; the Glendale Art Association, which she served as President; and the Los Angeles Society of Independent Artists.  In the 1930s, she was an art teacher at Glendale High School, and she exhibited regionally with the Society of Western Artists and Women Painters of the West.

In March, 1936, an exhibition of her work was held at the San Marcos Hotel in Chandler, Arizona.  The paintings "consisted of scenes of nature and Indian life in the old Mexican state of Oaxaca" as well as other landscapes and studies. (Western Artist)

Katharine Benepe studied at a variety of places including the University of California, the University of Montana, the Chicago Art Institute, the Julian Academy in Paris, France and privately with J. Francis Smith, Elmer Schofield, and Nicolai Fechin, who did a charcoal portrait of her "and her beautiful daughter Yvonne Ellen Lewis.  (This daughter was described as "long a top local model and favorite fodder for Herb Caen's column",  and still living in the city (2006) " remains as lovely as her portrait," which is in possession of her family.) (SF

She was married twice.  In 1940 her last name became Benepe, and in 1947 was Shackelford.
