Born in 1860 in Takeley, Essex, Mary Charlotte Greene had a passion for painting from a young age. She studied at the Colarossi Academy in Paris, while staying with her sister Helen, before training at the Royal Academy in London.

Her initial dismay at a family decision to live in Harston, Cambridgeshire, grew into a love of the village, the surrounding countryside and the nearby town of Cambridge. Working from a studio in a side road off St Andrew’s Street, she became a prominent member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and served as its President from 1926-29.

She was also the Aunt of famed author Graham Greene.
