American painter Louise Nimmo was the daughter of celebrated artist Mary Everett and was an impressionist still life and landscape painter. At age 11, she was taken to Europe to study the Old Masters and become familiar with the European art scene. Nimmo attended Grinnell College in Iowa and did her first serious painting as a student in Michigan.
In 1919 Nimmo moved to California and sold enough of her work to finance further sculpture study at the AcadÃ©mie Julian and the Fontainebleau School of Fine Arts in Fontainebleau, France. When she returned to California, she married attorney Rae Nimmo and became active in the local art scene, which included serving as President of the Women Painters of the West. To avoid competing with her new sister-in-law, sculptor Eugenie Everett, she focused on her love of painting and gave up sculpture.
