This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Davis Creek, Modoc County, CA on March 14, 1889. Mildred's mother was a botanist who often took her on botanical field trips. After graduating from California Normal School in Santa Barbara in 1912, she taught art at Palo Alto High School for two years. Following her marriage to Frank Scofield in 1916, she settled in San Francisco where she joined her husband in business. Upon retiring from the business in the early 1940s, she studied painting for several years with William Hubacek whose influence is seen in her work; she also studied with Peter Blos, Robert Rishell, Leon Franks, and Marquis Reitzel. Upon moving to Los Angeles about 1957, she was active in the local art scene as an exhibitor and teacher. Mrs. Scofield died in Laguna Beach on Aug. 22, 1983. Her realistic pastels and oils include landscapes, portraits, and still lifes of fruit and flowers. Exh: SWA, De Young Museum, 1954-60; Ebell Club (LA), 1958; Calif.
