In 1872 she entered the Queen’s Square School of Art and in 1874, began to study the antique galleries of the British Museum during the day and at Heatherley’s School of Art in the evening. Three years later and after five unsuccessful attempts, she was accepted into the RA schools and studied there for seven years.
