about the artist

Born in Leura NSW in 1920. After studying at the East Sydney Technical College under William Dobell and Frank Medworth, Anne was awarded the 1944 NSW Travalling Scholarship which enabled her to travel to the United States where she arrived on January 1, 1945. Anne had boarded at Merioola, a house in Rosemont Avenue, Woollahra run by Chica Lowe that was home to a number of artists in the 1940s including Mitty Lee Brown, Kate O’Brien and Alec Murray. In New York she studied painting with Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Rufino Tamayo, and printmaking with Stanley William Hayter. She has lived in North America, with a period in Kingston, Jamaica, ever since, but with frequent travels to Europe and regular visits to Australia. Since 1970 she has lived in Marin County, California. She is a sculptor, painter and addicted to drawing.
