Emma Thayer studied and exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League in New York. After moving to Colorado in 1882, she began writing and illustrating books on the native wild flowers. Her books combined travel adventure and botany as she described not only the native flowers, but also her experiences while hunting for the plants.
