Alternate Names

Gabriel Von Ursus


Artist, Author


Born from Hungarian nobility, Gabriel was separated from his family during wartimes in an effort to save his life and spare him the fate that befell his family. Most of his childhood was a life of that of an orphan surviving the streets of Hungary. Gabriel came to Canada after the Hungarian Revolution, although their ravages still remained. He made his home in British Columbia where he became a celebrated author on the Canadian Writers Union and began sculpting and painting.
