At age nineteen, Potter was already exhibiting and selling her work in various Chicago art shows and at twenty-two, she opened her first studio. Using her female friends as models, she received much attention for her small portrait statuettes called “Potterines.” Potter moved on to display her work with the New York Society of American Artists. She traveled to France making a pilgrimage to Rodin’s studio. Contrary to the turn to larger more monumental sculpture in the 1920’s and 1930’s, Potter chose to sculpt on a smaller scale. Her style matured and was well received both publicly and critically. In 1899, she married the American Impressionist painter Robert Vonnoh and settled in New York City. Potter was distinguished by becoming the first woman admitted as a permanent member of the National Academy of Design.
