Anne was born in Alice Springs in 1965 and grew up in Ernabella. Her family live at the Pitjantjatjara communities of Fregon and Watarru. Anne has three children: one son and two daughters. She spends time between Watarru, where her extended family live, and Alice Springs, as her husband is a teacher at Yirara College.
Anne was inspired to learn the Tjanpi coiled basketry technique after watching her mother, Wipana Jimmy, and aunty, Tinpulya Mervin, practise this artform. Anne has a strong sculptural sensibility and her baskets are unique and interesting. Anne enjoys working on a large scale and experimenting with new styles. Her baskets and sculptures are highly sought after artworks.
Anne has taken to producing flat sculptures with the same skilful eye and dexterity that she displays in her 3D works.
