She was born in Dundee in 1886 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1906 until 1917 and, being a noted ceramicist, also taught ceramics there. She painted portraits, still life and fairy/pixie themes popular at the time. She exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts.
