Born at Ajmeer in India of British parents, Agnes Hope lived variously at Zennor and Paul in West Cornwall, in Paris and Angers in France, as well as London and Ashstead, Surrey in Britain. She studied at the Forbes School, and at NAG in 1903 she exhibited and sold Newlyn, and in 1908 A child's head and By the Sea.
However, from 1905 through 1930, she spent at least a half - if not more - of her time in France, exhibiting frequently in the Paris Salon where her listed works include 38 paintings of topics such as flowers, gardens, Notre Dame, Quimperle, Concarneau, and quay-side scenes. One of her woodcuts was contributed to Elizabeth FORBES's journal, The PAPER CHASE.
