This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born and educated in Illinois including at the Art Institute of Chicago, Nona White was a resident of Peoria, Illinois in the late 19th century.  She and hers sister Emily White were active members of the Peoria Art League in the 1890s, and Nona served as the League's first Secretary.

She studied at the League meeting room with Frank Peyraud and Hardesty Maratta, and was especially admired for her watercolor landscape paintings, three which hang at the Peoria Women's Club.

Nona and Emily shared a studio on North Jefferson and Hamilton Boulevard, and gave lessons in oil and watercolor painting and china decoration.

In 1907, the sisters moved to California, where Nona became art critic for the Los Angeles Evening News.  She died in that in 1937.
