Mrs. A. M. Creery exhibited in Vancouver, starting at least as early as 1909 with the B.C. Society of Fine Art's debut First Annual Exhibition at the Dominion Hall in Vancouver. Later that year another miniature was shown in the Exhibition of Pictures held by the Vancouver Studio Club and School of Art.

She was listed as an Active Member in the 1925 B.C. Art League List of Members.

In the Studio Club catalogue she is listed as A.C. Creery, but is listed in an article by Felix Penne that year as Mrs. A.M. Creery. Another listing gives the name as A. McL. Creery. The 1909 City directory only lists one Creery in Vancouver: Andrew McCreight Creery, Manager of the Insurance Department for H. Bell-Irving & Co. Ltd. Creery lived at 1389 Jervis Street in Vancouver's West End.
