She was listed as an Active Member in the 1925 B.C. Art League List of Members, living at 1301 Davie Street, Vancouver.
She exhibited artwork in the annual B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery from 1943 to 1948, in 1952, and from 1954 to 1956. Information on file noted that she was living in Garrow Bay from 1943 to 1947, and in Vancouver in 1948.
BC Vital Statistics states that she died in North Vancouver in 1978 at the age of 86.
One of her oil paintings, "Arbutus", previously exhibited with the West Vancouver Sketch Club, was auctioned by Westcoast Estates in October 2003, the auctioneer noting that she had been a student of Emily Carr's. Also, he told an unfortunate story of going to Hall's house to handle her estate, only to find relatives burning handfuls of her watercolour paintings in the fireplace to keep themselves warm, the heat having been turned off in the house. I made a note on the auction catalogue that an estimated 1,000 paintings had been burned, and 1,000 saved from the relatives.
