on May 3, 1882. Meta studied in NYC with Chase, DuMond, and Henri. While there,
she met artist Bert Cressey whom she married. She returned with him to Los
Angeles in 1914 and lived at the Cressey ranch until purchasing a large estate
in the Hollywood Hills at 1830 North Sierra Bonita Avenue. Her lavish flower
garden often won prizes from the Hollywood Garden Club and provided subject
matter for her paintings. During the Depression the home had to be sold and,
depressed from its loss, she never painted again after 1936.
