In 1926, in Paris she married Chauncey Hackett, a Washington, D.C., lawyer. They had three children, Wendy, Thomas and Patrick. In the early 1930s the Hacketts visited Provincetown for the first time. After several summers renting various houses around town they bought the house on Nickerson Street.
From the 1930s she showed regularly at the Provincetown Art Association.
"I feel that for people who either pursue a life-long creative interest, or take it up after they've retired from another field, it's a life-giving activity... It's a constant discovery. You're always looking for a new way of doing things."
