|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
From about 1910 onwards Savary Island was visited regularly by artists, including Margaret Wake and Batchelor, who rented a cabin and painted on the island.
Batchelor and Wake are attributed as the founders of the Vancouver Sketch Club, an offshoot of the Vancouver Studio Club they were teaching at.
Batchelor had her work exhibited in the 1930 Vancouver Exhibition, representing the Vancouver Sketch Club.
According to BC Vital Statistics on-line, Batchelor died in Vancouver in 1963 at the age of 95. She was living at 7190 Granville Street at the time of her death.
