Ann Thomson was born in Brisbane in 1933. After studying with Jon Molvig in the mid 1950s, Thomson left Brisbane for Sydney and completed her studies at the National Art School in 1962. With the exception of a three year period spent in Brisbane (1974 â€“ 1977), during which time Thomson completed a 9 metre long mural commissioned for the University of Queenslandâ€™s Malley Refectory, the artist has continued to live and work in Sydney.
Thomsonâ€™s exhibiting career began in the mid 1960s when she held her first solo exhibition with Watters Gallery in Sydney. Since that time her work has continued to be exhibited widely both in Australia and abroad.
In 1977 Thomsonâ€™s work was the subject of a major exhibition at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane and in 1980 a survey exhibition of the artistâ€™s work was curated by Monash University, Melbourne.
In 1998 Thomson was the recipient of the Wynne Prize, AGNSW. In 2002 she won the Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, and three years later in 2005 was awarded the Kedumba Drawing Award, NSW.
