Antje Collis was born in Hamburg, Germany. She migrated to Australia with her parents when she was a baby and grew up in rural Western Australia, spending her school years in Geraldton and Morawa.

Having been educated in Australia, it was not long before an easy alternative was found to her German name, (pronouced "Unchair") and Antje became known as Anne.

She is mainly a self taught artist and the development of her appealing and sometimes quirky style has come about as a result of taking what has appealed from various subjects without allowing other styles and techniques to inhibit her progress.

Antje aims to keep her style simple and uncluttered with her philosophy being that it is often more about what you don't include that makes a painting appealing. She has used her imagination and flair to develop a fresh and individual style that includes a variety of subjects and mediums. Antje works with many media including: watercolour, acrylic and other water based media. She often mixes these mediums in her paintings.

Her work is featured in selected art shows and galleries around Australia.
