Born in San Francisco, CA on Nov. 19, 1865.
Hunter studied locally with William Keith and at the School of Design under Carisen, Joullin, and Mathews and had further training at the ASL in NYC.
At one time she was engaged to artist Francis McComas. After the city was destroyed in 1906, she moved to Monterey. In 1918 she returned to the San Francisco Bay area and settled in Alameda; however, summers often were spent on the Monterey Peninsula where she obtained much of her subject matter.
Many of her illustrations appeared in Sunset magazine. From her studio came still lifes and scenes of the San Francisco Bay area. Unmarried, she died in Alameda on Feb. 8, 1941.
