Amelia Bowerley, who worked under several names of which Bowerley was the one under which she became best-known, was a fairly prolific illustrator, portrait painter and etcher working around the turn of the century. She was born in London and studied at the South Kensington Schools and the Slade before travelling in Italy and Munich. She exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy from 1897 until her death, and although based in London, also showed work in Paris and America.
