Biography

Born in Australia, Cadell was a cousin of the Scottish Colourist FCB Cadell. The family moved back to Edinburgh and, in the 1930s, she and her sister, Agnes, also a painter, built Whinmill Brae House, on the Water of Leith, which they designed around a large studio. She exhibited regularly at the Royal Scottish Academy and with the Scottish Society of Women Artists. She painted mainly children and animals but later turned to landscapes, particularly of the Kintail area.
