Ella Constable was born in Temuka on the South Island of New Zealand, and was given the Maori name of Arahenua, which her family soon shortened to Winoa. She was a daughter of Hugh Golding Constable and was a great-granddaughter of John Constable. She appears to have resided also in County Kerry, Ireland during the years around World War I during which time she exhibited at the RHA. During the 1930's she was living in East Anglia and was at that time a member and exhibitor at the Ipswich Art Club 1932-39. She lived at Dedham, Essex, not too far from East Bergholt from where her famous artist relative lived. Her mother Elinor May Constable was also an artist.
