Maud Llewellyn Wethered studied at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1916-21, first under Tonks, and later with the sculptor, Harvard Thomas. Her early watercolours were strongly influenced by her father - Vernon Wethered (1865–1952) - with whom she painted on frequent family holidays in Europe. However, Maud’s artistic ambitions were restless and she soon turned to sculpture, both in relief and in the round. She exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, Society of Wood Engravers, Goupil Gallery, NEAC, Chenil Gallery, Redfern Gallery, Fieldborne Galleries, Whitechapel Gallery and at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
