This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Denver, CO on April 30, 1904. The MacDonald family settled in San Francisco during the Gold Rush of the 1850s. Flora was born in Denver while her parents were traveling across country. She grew up in San Francisco and graduated from Lowell High School. While living on the Monterey Peninsula in the 1920s, she studied painting with Armin Hansen. Active in the local art scene there, she was a friend and sketching partner of the Bruton sisters. Many trips were made to Europe for further art study with André Lhote in Paris and in Florence. On one of these trips in the mid-1920s she married English artist Wm Johnstone who was director of the Central School of Art in London. Flora taught at that school and remained in London through the bombings of WWII. Following her divorce, she returned to California in 1945. In that year she married Carl Meyer and lived in the California cities of Winters and Weldon. The couple moved to the Monterey Peninsula in 1953. Flora Meyer died in Carmel on April 30, 1976. Working in oil and watercolor, she painted landscapes, still lifes, cats, and family portraits. Exh: SFAA, 1924; Beaux Arts Gallery (SF), 1927.
