Anna Curtis was born in Wangaratta, Victoria in 1960. She completed a Diploma of Fine Art, majoring in painting and printmaking, at Bendigo College of Advanced Education in 1981. In 1983, Anna traveled north to Mackay where she established herself as an artist and teacher. Her love of printmaking grew as she developed her own unique technique and style in reduction lino printing. Since then, Anna has traveled extensively throughout Australia and overseas.
She now lives in Port Douglas, North Queensland, working from her studio nestled in the Mowbray Valley. Her passion for lino printing continues as she keeps pushing the boundaries with this versatile medium.
As well as being immersed in her artwork, she loves to grow the food she eats and to share it with others. Inspired by her immediate environment and love of nature, Anna’s lino prints celebrate the essence of tropical and inland Australia.
Anna has worked as a professional artist for over 25 years. She has held numerous solo and group exhibitions around Australia and has won awards for her fine lino prints. Her work is represented in private and public collections.
