Ann Mitchell is a painter and writer based in North Hatley. Ann’s paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums, and many currently reside in private collections across Canada and the United States. These paintings join the imagined with the real to create stories and record family histories. When asked if her work has changed over the years, she laughs and notes that her newer work perhaps depicts more whimsical situations, but that her paintings continue to focus on memories of family life. Ann still lives and paints in her beloved farmhouse, “Windward,” in North Hatley, Quebec, where visits from her children and grandchildren add enormous pleasure to her life.
We are currently selling her second book Memories Are Made of This.
