So when I'm not painting, one of my favorite things to do is coach my son's baseball team. We won the Championship last season, and it felt so amazing to see these boys grow and succeed. Winter is just starting and I'm already thinking about next season.

Edith Sansum's family moved to New Orleans shortly after her birth. Her parents, who were originally from Barbados, had seven children and lived in the Uptown area, where Edith's father, Oliver Baker Sansum, practiced law. From the age of sixteen, Sansum began studying art, excelling in both sketching and oil painting, for which she was awarded medals from the Black and White Club and the Artists' Association of New Orleans. Studying with noted New Orleans artists such as Helen Maria Turner and Julia Massey, Sansum eventually became an art instructor, teaching private lessons from her parents' home. After the year 1901, Sansum seems to have abruptly abandoned her art career, turning to clerical work. However, her lovely still life paintings and landscapes, such as the current lot depicting a cabin in rural Louisiana, attest to Sansum's artistic talents.
