Additional Information

Ila McAfee was born in Gunnison, Colorado in 1897 before attending art school in Los Angeles, and later, the Arts Student League in New York City. McAfee visited Taos in 1926, the same year she married Elmer Paige Turner, an artist she met on her parent’s ranch in Colorado. The two moved to Taos permanently in 1929 and built the White Horse Studio, where she continued to live and work until 1993. In Taos she was known for her paintings of the Taos Pueblo as well as horses, Native Americans, ranch scenes and landscapes. She moved to Pueblo, Colorado for the last two years of her life, a town about an hour north of Crestone Peak. Crestone Peak is the seventh-highest summit of the Rocky Mountains at 14,300 feet.
