She immigrated to Australia at the age of 18, and worked as a fashion illustrator, as well as producing political and society caricatures for The Bulletin. In 1925, she married Mick Paul (c1888–1945), another illustrator, and with his encouragement, studied under Lawson Balfour (1870–1966) and Sydney Long (1871–1955) at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, where she produced etchings and woodcuts, as well as paintings. She illustrated stories in several publications, including the Sydney Mail, Wentworth Magazine, and The Australian Woman's Mirror. She also wrote art reviews, critiques, and home decoration articles, and was the editor of The Etched Work of Sydney Long A.R.E, published in 1928. She exhibited a portrait in the Archibald Prize in 1929. Ref: AusLit; DAAO.
