Born in Brooklyn, NY; deafened by meningitis at age 2. After a speech school failed, her father put her with a private tutor. She later took formal lessons in drawing and painting from various artists, and studied art on a tour of Italy and France, remaining in Paris for some years where she painted and exhibited. World War I forced her return to the U.S., where she did volunteer Red Cross work. She returned to Paris in 1925, but information on her last years is lacking.
