Anne Leon NSW

Born in South Africa, Anne immigrated to Australia in 1974 having completed her first year of a BA Fine Art at the University of Natal. Settling in Brisbane, she graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art, majoring in ceramics. Anne has been evolving her design and art practice ever since, and currently works primarily in textiles.

The diverse nature and versatility of Anne’s work reflect a rich artistic career, and include screen-and block-printing, painting and dyeing, on textiles and paper. This quality has earned her numerous large commissions, from interior designers, architects and couturiers both domestic and international.

Anne works from her studio in Mullumbimby, Northern NSW Australia, where she creates custom hand-printed and naturally dyed textiles and maintains her arts practice. She conducts workshops throughout Australia.                                                                                                                              instagram: anneleonart
