An artist from the 1800's, who was one of the first true masters of animal and human anatomy. She was often swayed from her art by men who tried to court her, some even proposed, but sadly, it was only because of how beautiful she was for her time. Many people used to say she didn't just create art, she was art!

Gorgeous, amazingly gifted, and a very loving friend to anyone she came in contact with, I really admire her.

Sadly, she died at only 27 years of age, unmarried because of her finickiness with men, and without any children to carry her legacy onward, even though some would argue that she had a young son with her landlord Joshua Howard.
