Lippincott enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps during World War II, and would later use the GI Bill to study in Taos, New Mexico at Emil Bisttram’s School of Art in 1949. She continued her artistic studies with brief fellowships at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the San Francisco Art Institute. Settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the 1950s, Lippincott continued to work on her art until her death in 2007.
