Anthony was born in New York City in 1943. She and her identical twin sister Elaine Anthony were raised in Connecticut. Anthony attended Stephens College, Missouri and the Rhode Island School of Design, earning a bachelor's degree in art in 1966.
In the 1970s, Anthony's papier-mache sculptures, earned recognition and one is now in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian. She said the papier-mache was a tribute to her father. The Museum of Contemporary Crafts featured an exhibition of her three-dimensional figures.
By 1978, she stopped sculpting to focus on painting, particularly of still lifes and simple scenes. Her paintings are often made with layered oil pastel on gessoed, textured masonite. She creates ethereal light by using many thin applications of color in many layers. Her paintings and monotypes are represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Carnegie Institute, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden among others.
In 2009 Anthony participated in the exhibition, Best of The West: Southwest, representing artists in the New Mexico.
