Anthea was born in Adelaide and went to school in Ernabella and Amata, located in the APY Lands in South Australia. Anthea’s mother is the highly regarded artist, Alison Munti Riley. Unlike her mother, Anthea prefers to paint with bold brush strokes and is developing her own individual style while learning culture. This painting depicts a favourite bush tucker of bush tomatoes. Anthea’s painting style contains a youthful and carefree energy and she prefers a bold colour palette.
