My name is Anthea Boesenberg, and I am a visual artist. I am primarily a printmaker, but I also work in photography, mixed media, assemblage, drawing and encaustic. Box of Birds is a window into what I’m doing and thinking about at the moment. I live in Sydney, Australia. I can be contacted by email at anthea.b at optusnet.com.au.

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    It may well have been mine. I have a piece in Rabobank, and recently sold another similar series which could also be displayed somewhere in the city. Please contact me on Anthea.b@optusnet.com.au if you would like discuss.

    Hi Anthea,

    I recently saw an artwork in a building in the city that was rust on paper that would continue to evolve over time. Is this yours? I am keen for a piece like it.

    Thanks

    Hi Anthea, I think I may have picked your card up at possibly the art show in Sydney at Fox Studio many many years ago, I still have it and I thought I’d look you up!! Love Love your work!! That’s why I picked your card up and kept it 🙂 I’m a Sydney artist too and have a studio at One Plus 2 at Lilyfield
