Watrous was a painter and author, born in New York. She studied with Henner and Carolus-Duran in Paris. In 1887, she married the artist Henry Wilson Watrous and lived with him in New York where he had a studio. In the 1890’s they built a home in the Adirondacks on Lake George and would summer there.

Watrous was the President of the National Association of Women Artists (1911-1913) and a member of the Pen and Brush Club, the New York Woman’s Art Club and the Society of Women Painters and Sculptors. She exhibited at the Society of Independent Artists in 1917 and the National Academy of Design for many years.
