An abstract painter, she was a meticulous worker who ground her own pigments and then mixed her paints, which she placed in carefully diagrammed designs of pure blocks of color. In 1936, she was one of the founding members of the American Abstract Artists at a time when that style was not at all well received. As she got older, her work got darker and more muted, but they always had balance of form.
