Henrietta Drake-Brockman

Henrietta Drake-Brockman (27 July 1901 - 8 March 1968) was born in Perth, Western Australia, and from an early age intended to become an artist.

She was educated in Western Australia, Scotland and New South Wales, but when at the age of twenty she married and went to roam in the Kimberleys and live at Broome with her engineer husband, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman, she gave up all thought of painting on canvas and took to pen and paper.
