Remington was born in 1930 and grew up in Haddonfield, New Jersey. She was the daughter of the late Malcolm VanDyke and Hazel (née Stewart) Remington. With an early inclination towards art, she enrolled in classes at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art as a teenager. In 1955, she received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute where she studied under Clyfford Still.

By the time she graduated from the Institute, she had become affiliated with the Bay Area's Beat scene. In 1954, she was one of six painters and poets, and the only woman, who founded the now legendary Six Gallery in San Francisco.

After graduation, Remington spent two years traveling and living in Japan, Southeast Asia, and India. While in Japan she studied classical and contemporary calligraphy and earned money by teaching English and tutoring actors. This led to some work acting in B movies, including the film "Nightmare's Bad Dream".

Returning to the United States, she took up painting more seriously. She began to exhibit her work at the Dilexi Gallery in San Francisco and had solo shows in 1962, 1963, and 1965. In 1965, Remington moved to New York City. She had her first solo exhibition in NYC in 1966 at the Bykert Gallery at 15 W. 57th Street in Manhattan. She had four solo shows there between 1967 and 1974.

In 1983 Remington had a twenty-year retrospective exhibition that opened at the Newport Harbor Museum in California. This exhibition later traveled to the Oakland Museum (today, the Oakland Museum of California) and other venues. In 1984 she received a Guggenheim Fellowship.

She was elected to the National Academy of Design in 1999, and in the same year was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.
