Ethel Kirkpatrick was born in Dublin, Ireland, but most of her productive years were spent in London or South England. Although there are scant biographical details, Kirkpatrick was a watercolorist, oil painter and woodcut artist. She studied at the Royal Academy in London and the Central School of Arts and Crafts. She apparently visited the Near East, and exhibited prints based on her journey at The Royal Academy, The Society of Graver-Printers in Colour, and The Arts and Crafts Society. She lived at Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, for some time, and many of her works depict views of that area.
