Frances Marian Hebert was a painter, printmaker, educator, designer and craftsman. Her formal studies began at the University of Montana where she earned her B.A. in physics and mathematics. Hebert moved west due to tuberculosis and settled in Santa Barbara in 1923. She continued studies at University of California, State Teachers College, and at the Santa Barbara School of the Arts where she was a student of Frank Morley Fletcher, Edward Borein, and Belmore Browne. Further studies included etching with Mauricio Lasansky, watercolor with Eliot O’Hara, and white-line (one-block) color woodcut with Cora Boone of Oakland. She was an art teacher at the Evening High School in Santa Barbara and worked under the California WPA in the late 1930s producing a body of aquatints. Quite facile with aquatint and white-line woodcut, Hebert produced a limited body of exquisite floral imagery in both mediums.
