Anthea grew up in north east Victoria and completed her BFA in Fine Art at RMIT.  She has recently moved to Sydney and is expanding explorations into unfamiliar place in the reflection to her painting research and creation. Familiar landscape and memory have been on going themes in her painting. From this she is moving towards the research in the physicality of painting and how particular motifs, mark and line formed from elements in the natural landscape inform her work and energy from painting.
