Anne Youkeles was born in Austria in 1920. She studied at the Kunstgewerbe Schule, Vienna and, after emigrating to the United States, at Ohio State University. Her work in the 1950s and early-1960s was principally figurative, but in the late-1960s she turned to abstraction. and in particular the creation of three-dimensional works using paper and canvas. In her own words:

"The lines between sculpture and painting, photography and painting, and printmaking and painting have largely been blurred in the last few decades. The term ‘mixed media’ has become universally accepted. My work has taken advantage of these new opportunities, and has benefited from the permissiveness that has encouraged artists to follow their creativity, without worrying whether these techniques were acceptable. During my working life as an artist, I have gone from prints to paintings to handmade paper pieces, sometimes combining several techniques to achieve the desired result. However, the one constant has been my desire to make my work as three dimensional as possible. My prints, paintings, and paper works have always incorporated elements of sculpture through the use of folded canvas and paper as well as hand cast paper shapes in order to further my goal. My other aim was to combine small parts or modules to fashion a larger cohesive work, ‘the sum of the parts.’ The goal now, as always, has been to express a view of ‘The Landscape of My Mind.’"
