Birth: 1869
Death: 1904

Painter.She was born in Glasgow, the daughter of a schoolmaster, and attended Glasgow School of Art from 1887 until 1892. After leaving the GSA MacNicol studied art in Paris at the Academie Colarossi and in 1893 exhibited at the Royal Academy.
Upon her return to Glasgow, MacNicol moved back into the family home and by 1896 had acquired a studio in St Vincent Street. That year she spent time in Kirkcudbright, a small town popular with Glasgow artists including E A Hornel, whose portrait MacNicol painted around this time. In 1899 she married and moved to live with her husband at Hillhead where she had a large studio at the back of the house. She was an artist respected by her contemporaries and exhibited in Scotland and London, in several European cities and at Pittsburg and St Louis in the USA. She continued to paint until her death while pregnant at the age of 34.
