Irene E. Jerome moved from Cazenovia, NY in 1875 to Chicago, where she spent three months in drawing from casts in the Academy of design. That being her only art education, in 1882 she exhibited eighteen sketches of Colorado scenery which were critically well received. Between 1885 and 1887 she published four illustrated books.
