Anna Austin

Printmaker

Anna Austin’s mezzotints are small and unassuming, incorporating references to Anna’s personal experiences, symbolism and childhood memories.

Mezzotinting is the most physically demanding and labour intensive form of printmaking, a process where the copper printing plate is roughed (or rocked) by hand using a wide, chisel-like tool. Anna is one of only a handful of contemporary Australian artists whose printmaking focuses entirely on mezzotints.

In 2010 Anna was involved in a six week internship at the Anchor Graphics Studio in Chicago and participated in a Helpmann Academay mentorship placement in 2006.
