Anne-Maree Hunter comes from a background in printmaking specialising in lithography and etching. A keen interest in text, led naturally to artists’ books. She completed a PhD titled “Constructing the Eclectic Bibliothèque” at The University of Newcastle concerned with creating a library of artists’ books in all their diversity. To date, Anne-Maree has created over one hundred artists’ books from the very small to the very large. They include one-of-a-kind altered books, book objects, installations and sculptures. Others are editioned in small numbers using various print mediums including letterpress.
Anne-Maree has been exhibiting since 1989 and has had 13 solo exhibitions chiefly of her prints, which have been collected by a number of workshops and special collections internationally such as the Chicago Printmaking Collective Workshop, London Print Studios and the Chang Mai Contemporary Art Museum, Thailand. In Australia, her books have been collected by The Monash University Rare Books Collection, The Baillieu Library at The University of Melbourne and the State Libraries in both Victoria and Queensland. In 2005 Anne-Maree’s work Pillow Book received a finalist award at the 1st Seoul International Books Arts Competition, South Korea and in 2008, she was one of the international artists invited to show work and present a paper at the Seongnam International Bookarts Fair and Conference in South Korea.
She has previously lectured in Printmaking at The University of Newcastle, Australia. Her motto Faciendi plures libros nullus est finis we are assured in Ecclesiastes 12-12, is that “Of making many books there is no end”.
