Phyllis M PULLING
The daughter of a barrister, she was born and educated in London and studied at the London School of Art where she won a scholarship for life drawing. She also went to St John's Wood School of Art and South Kensington. She worked in tempera and watercolours, and painted decorative panels and posters.
