A short biography on Flora Scales is included in the exhibition notes [see Related images]. Scales is also mentioned under the biography for Toss Woollaston, "In 1934, Woollaston sought lessons from Flora Scales and was indelibly influenced by his time with her. Woollaston later shared her [Hans] Hofmann School notes with [Colin] McCahon. Woollaston's study of these notes culminated in his first solo exhibition held in Dunedin in 1936." - Canon: Celebrating Nelson's Art History exhibition notes, pg 26
