Painter, Edith White was born
near Decorah, Iowa on March 29, 1855. At age four Edith White came across the
plains with her family in an ox-drawn wagon. Upon arriving in California, they
settled in a mining camp in Nevada County.
After graduation from Mills College in Oakland in 1874, she studied art at the School of Design in San Francisco under Virgil Williams and later at the Art Students' League in New York City. In 1882 she established her first studio in Los Angeles and after 1892 lived in Pasadena with a studio in the Green Hotel.
As a member of the Theosophical Society, in 1902 she moved south to Point Loma and taught art at the Raja Yoga Academy. By 1930 she had returned to Northern California and established a home at 2801 Russell Street in Berkeley. At her studio there, she continued to teach and paint into her old age.
Her oeuvre includes portraits, floral still lifes, missions, and landscapes with flowers.
