This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A member of The Sisters of St. Joseph, Sister Marie-Teresa, whose secular name was Frances Mackey, was a resident nun of the Holy Angels in Richfield, Minnesota in the 1930s and 40s. She had previously chaired the Art Department at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, and as one of the founders of the college in 1904-1905, her self portrait is a part of the Colleges collection of art depicting the founders. Previous to that she had been an instructor at St. Agatha's Conservatory of Music and Arts in St. Paul, where one of her students was the young Lillian Turnblad, whose family owned the thirty three room mansion in Minneapolis, which later became the Swedish Institute. 

Sister Marie Teresa, at the young Lillian's request, painted Lillian's portrait.  Some years later, in 1937, when Lillian as an older woman with no living close family, moved to the grounds of Holy Angels, she re-met Sister Marie Teresa.  Of her Lillian requested painted paint portraits of both her parents from photographs.  These oil portraits are in the collection of the Swedish Institute.

Sister Marie Teresa was born in Stillwater, Minnesota and spent her early career living in St. Paul, where she did her teaching at St. Catherine's and St. Agatha's. She studied in New York City at the New York School and at the Art Students League, and Robert Henri was among her teachers.  She also took training at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and in Europe in Florence and Munich.
