Edna Hibel (1917-2014) grew up in the Boston area and by the young age of 9, she began experimenting with painting in elementary school. Her summers where spent along the shore in Hull, Massachusetts and in Maine learning about watercolor painting. Hibel received her formal artistic training at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, from 1935-1939. In 1942, she earned the Sturtevant Traveling Fellowship to Mexico.

When Hibel was just 23, the Boston Museum of fine Arts acquired one of her paintings for their collection making her, at the time, the youngest artist to be purchased by a major American museum.
