Anna Caselberg is the only daughter of Toss Woollaston and an artist in her own right. She studied under Colin McCahon and in 1960 married the poet, John Caselberg.
Portraiture was an important element in Woollaston's work and he continued to develop it throughout his career. He described his approach as observing the subject "sometimes for quite a long time, till I find their most natural attitudes and movements. I do not copy their actual physical movements...but I have a rich means of suggesting them - the lean and tilt of the different planes and volumes in contrasting directions..." (Barnett, 1991, p.67).
