Born in Berkeley, California, she became a painter and etcher who studied at the University of California and was active in the 1920s in Chicago before moving to Shoreham, New York.

Biography from Spencer Jon Helfen Fine Arts:
Born Cleonike Damianakes in 1895, Cleo Wilkins studied at the University of California in her native Berkeley. In 1924 she married her first husband, Richard Oliver, and lived for a time in Hollywood. She was a member of both the California and Chicago Societies of Etchers, and from the 1920s through the 1940s was active in Chicago and New York City.

Wilkins, as Cleonike Damianakes, illustrated the dust jackets of Conrad Aiken’s Great Circle, Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms, and several titles by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Wilkins was active in Oakland and also in Berkeley, where she is reputed to have painted murals for the city’s High School Auditorium.

By the 1960s she had married a second time, to Ralph Wilkins. Cleo Wilkins passed away in Berkeley in 1979.
