Born in Rhode Island, Albee, studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and in Paris.She took up wood engraving in 1928 as a relief from life's tensions, recording rural subject matter,urban changes, landscapes, and various themes from nature. Working in the realistic manner, her detailed use of the graver on the wood block produced fineline work reminiscent of the Old Masters. Her work was of such consistency and quality it guaranteed her election to the National Academy. Her prints are represented in museums throughout the United States with large holdings in the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Georgetown University, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum.
