This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Auckland, New Zealand on Nov. 16, 1880, Macky won a drawing contest at age 14 which provided a scholarship at the Elam Art School in his native city.   He then moved to Melbourne where he studied at the National Gallery School (1903-06).  

In 1907 he furthered his art training for three years in Paris at Académie Julian under Jean-Paul Laurens.  After his Paris studies, Macky settled in Oakland, CA in 1910.   Locally, he taught at the CCAC (1913-21), UC Berkeley, and CSFA where he was dean from 1919 until 1944.  Macky lectured widely in the San Francisco Bay area and was a great organizer at the San Francisco Art Ass'n and CSFA.   His oeuvre includes portraits, landscapes, scenes of San Francisco, figure studies, and still lives.

He died in San Francisco on May 5, 1958.
