She illustrated a number of children’s books, including Heidi, Hans Brinker, Stories of Mrs. Moleworth, Stories by Juliana Horatia Ewing, and East o’ the Sun, West o’ the Moon.  She did illustrations, including several covers, for such magazines as The Ladies Home Journal, McCall’s Magazine, and The Delineator. She also illustrated textbooks for John C. Winston Co. and Scribner’s.....
