Dr Anne Lord’s childhood spent in rural North West Queensland stimulated a strong and enduring relationship to place that has been ever-present in her art practice and research. During Anne’s extensive history of art practice, spanning over thirty years, her focus has been on producing works that function as “metaphors for environment and change, as well as contemporary issues.” Anne’s works have featured in numerous individual, group, and touring exhibitions since the 1980s. Now retired, Anne taught at Townsville College of TAFE from 1979 to 1991, then JCU from 1991 to 2013, and currently focuses full-time on her art practice. Anne’s research and publication history dates back to the late 1980s, as do the numerous grants and awards she has received.
