The official colorist for KODAK and the wife of artist Albert Beutler, her art shop in Honolulu, The Color Art Shop, was the place to go for color photographs of Oahu. Her outstanding work appeared in numerous books in the 1930s and 40s, including the 1944 illustrated book with Frank Warren, "Trees and Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands." In addition to her floral works, she also produced a number of colorful panoramas from around Hawaii.
