Sculptor Bio

Anne Morris

Anne Morris

My work as a sculptor currently explores traditional female needleart techniques that I experimented with in my earlier sculptural pieces (exhibited at Mildura, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney throughout the 1970s/80s/90s) combined with my growing environmental concerns. The use of recycled textile materials links to the social and political message of ecological balance and harmony. As I travelled and worked as a community artist, interacting with people in a variety of situations, I learned about the unique and threatened nature of our landscape and looked for ways to draw attention to its need for active protection.

I was born in Canberra 1955. I am a graduate of Canberra School of Art (Fine Arts, Sculpture) 1976, Canberra College of Advanced Education (Graduate Diploma of Education) 1977, the Victorian College of the Arts (Graduate Fine Arts, Sculpture) 1980 and Charles Sturt University 2002 (Master of Education, Teacher Librarianship).

Community Artist

I have worked as a community artist since 1977 primarily coordinating community based murals. These projects have been carried out throughout Australia in a variety of urban, industrial and rural environments, and in China 1986 & 1988 through a Cultural Exchange programme. Other notable projects were painted with the workers of the Williamstown Naval Dockyards Vic and Fremantle Port Authority WA, the First Nations community of Ngunmarriyunga NT, and for Amnesty International ACT. I currently live and work at Bandon Grove NSW (Worimi Country)
