Antonia Aitken is an artist based between Launceston and Hobart. She is currently lecturing in printmaking and drawing at the University of Tasmania’s School for Creative Arts and Media (CAM).  Her artwork has been shown nationally and internationally and is held in significant print and artist book collections such as the National Gallery of Australia and Library of Congress WA, USA. Her art practice engages walking, printmaking and drawing and investigates how we form sensitive and ethical attachments to place within a contemporary Australian context. Her recent PhD research examined her developing relationship with lutruwita (Tasmania) and how our complex histories shape and inform personal entanglements with where we walk.
