Ann Hurst


Ann Hurst has lived and painted in Lions Bay since 1980 and is still amazed by the stunning and ever-changing array of scenescapes all around….Whistler, Howe Sound, North Shore and Vancouver…. that provide the inspirations to capture the moment.

Ann studied with Frances Landsberg at Studio-by-the-Sea, in West Vancouver, whose mentoring brought out the best of her natural impressionist talents.  She was guest-artist in the BC Pavilion at Expo 86, and over the years a featured artist at many art shows and galleries in the area, including her own First Street Gallery.  Her art has been featured on Lions Bay annual banners on several occasions, and has been donated to many worthy causes. Five art card series of 6 cards each: Blackcomb, Whistler, Sea to Sky and Vancouver 1&2 have been very popular gifts, still available today.

Ann is admired widely for capturing both the impression and the emotion of a scene in luminous watercolours and rich, bold oils.  Her paintings are loved in homes all across Canada and in the USA, UK, Italy, and elsewhere.

Today, her Lions Bay home is her gallery, open by appointment.
