Anne lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.

She first completed a Drawing Degree and worked as a freelance illustrator, completing numerous children's books for various publishing houses, including Oxford University Press, Longman and Cheshire and Thomas Nelson Australia.

She then completed a Sculpture Degree and became very involved with the foundry process.

Her drawing comes through in her sculpture, seen with the line, form, volume and command of space in her works, as well as her understanding of the human form.

The works range in scale from very small, intimate pieces, through to major large outdoor public sculptures.

Within the works she explores the 'universal human condition'.

Many of the works are in small editions, and some are unique pieces.
