Ann Savage was born in Montreal in 1896 and grew up in then-rural Dorval. Influenced by summers spent in the Laurentian Mountains, Savage began painting landscapes at a young age. She attended The Art Association of Montreal and the Minneapolis School of Art, and then began a career as a teacher Baron Byng High School in Montreal.

Although influenced by the Group of Seven’s A.Y. Jackson, with whom she was close friends, Savage’s works reflect a land inhabited by a harmonious human presence, rather than a deserted wilderness. In her later years, she began to venture towards abstraction, simplifying form and employing patches of colour.
