Abastenia St. Leger Eberle was born in Iowa but raised in Canton, Ohio. She received her first artistic training from a local sculptor who was one of her doctor-father's patients. In 1899, she moved to New York City to attend the Art Students League, studying with C.Y. Harvey, George Grey Barnard, and Kenyon Cox. Her first piece to win public attention was a large sculpture, Men and Bull, made in collaboration with Anna Vaughan Hyatt. After the work was highly praised in a Society of American Artists exhibition, it was awarded a bronze medal at the St. Louis Exposition.
