Anne Jillett lives and works in far north Queensland and her studio is located amid the lush tropical rainforests of Mt Bellenden Ker, south of Cairns.
Anne has a deep fascination with textiles which, combined with her love of the natural world, inspires and informs much of her arts practice. Working across a range of media, including sculptural basketry and contemporary embroidery, Anne’s works look at natural phenomena of the ocean and waterways of the region, as well as the drama and colour of the desert country of Central and Northern Australia.
Recently Anne has developed an interest in ceramics as a medium through which to create sculptural forms that are informed by her sense of connection to earth and natural pigments, largely because of her recent experiences of bush fires, droughts and floods in the region.
Anne has had several solo exhibitions and was represented in the Cairns Art Gallery’s 2022 ARTNOW FNQ exhibition.
