Elizabeth Mary Watt (1885-1954)
Born in Dundee and educated a Morgan Academy she designed for the woven fabric maker Joseph M Saddler, and enrolled as a commercial colourist at Glasgow School of Art. She later became a freelance artist. In 1919 was made a member of the Glasgow Society of Lady Artists, and embarked on a lifetime of steadily successful exhibiting, sometimes with Kate Wylie, also showing at the Royal Institute of Fine Arts and RSA. For a time shared a studio with Hesse, sister of Benno Schotz, in whose autobiography Bronze in my Blood Watt makes a brief appearance.
