Because women were not admitted to Belgian art academies, Louise de Hem was first trained by her artist brother-in-law, Théodore Ceriez, and then in Paris at the Académie Julian.  In her hometown of Ypres and later in Vorst, she became successful as a portrait, genre, and still-life painter, often exhibiting in Paris and London.  She married Frédéric Lebbe, an engineer, in 1908 and was knighted in 1911.
