Florence Parker was an early graduate from the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts, receiving her diploma in 1930.

She exhibited her artwork in the B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery starting in 1934.

The Spring 1936 edition of The Smock Pocket, the Vancouver School of Art Graduates' Association newsletter noted, that she had "decorated the walls and ceiling of the small children's dining room at the Preventorium - a circus theme was used".

B.C. Vital Statistics on-line provides information that a Florence Mary Parker died in Richmond on June 17 1952 at the age of 43, probably the artist.
