School of Fine Arts and taught art in various California schools.
the mural Indians Moving installed at the Caldwell Post Office in 1939
(presently hanging in the Burleson
County courthouse), she also painted Indian Buffalo Hunt which remains
in the Eastland post office where
it was installed the same year that Indians Moving was painted. Another
of her murals is in the main post office in Berkeley, California and perhaps her
most ambitious project was a fresco mural for San Francisco’s Coit Tower, representing
the newspaper business.

Burleson County judge, Mike Sutherland, said that the Post Office is closed but
they took the mural out before the building was sold. It's now hanging in the
main lobby of the courthouse.
