Born in Poland, Karlowska studied at the Académie Julian in Paris and in 1897 married fellow painter Robert Bevan. She began exhibiting at the Allied Artists’ Association and became involved with Sickert’s Fitzroy Street Group. Though as a woman she was not eligible to join the Camden Town Group, she did show with them at their Brighton Exhibition in 1913, and became a member of the London Group in 1914: she exhibited with them throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
