This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical information has been provided by Ami Tyler-Herzon, daughter of the artist:
Anna McCullough Tyler
January 12, 1930 – November 29, 2009
Anna Tyler was a master of monoprint, woodcuts and other printing techniques including print and collage.  Specializing in abstract images many resembled impressionistic landscapes.

She was born to William and Effie McCullough, and grew up in Evanston, Illinois. Her interest in art developed at Noyes Elementary School in Evanston and segued into her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago and at La Esmeralda Art Center in Mexico City.  Pioneer African American sculptor, Elizabeth Catlett served as her mentor during her time in Mexico City.

This exchange of cultural experiences as a professional artist and as a humanitarian served as a new perspective. In her lifetime witnessing global changes and partaking in national issues, Anna’s visionary art was part of those changes. Under the auspices of DePaul University, Anna taught experimental art classes to hearing impaired youth at the South Park Community Center . She has inspired and instructed professional and non-professional artists on the subject of the monoprint.  During her illustrious career Anna lectured extensively on African American Art History throughout the Chicago area.

Anna’s extensive exhibition history includes a twenty-three year relationship as a founding member of the African American Women’s Art Collective,  Sapphire & Crystals, as well as exhibitions at Atlanta University, Chicago State University, Milliken University, Evanston and Oak Park Public Libraries, the Martin Luther King Jr. Performing and Cultural Arts Complex in Columbus Ohio, the South Side Community Art Center (where she served on the board), New Deal to New Power at the Robert Henry Adams Gallery (Chicago), and shows at Woman Made, Peter James, and the Wood Street Galleries (Chicago).
Replicas of paintings by Anna Tyler are on the covers of four of Illinois’ long time poet laureate (1968 – 2000) Gwendolyn Brooks’ books. Tyler has been noted in many books and periodicals, including: The Western Journal of Black Studies, Washington State University Press; The International Review of African American Art;  Chiarmonte’s  Women Artists in the United States, a Selected Bibliography; and  Lewis/Waddy’s Black Artists on Art, V.2 .

Mrs. Tyler’s work is held in many private and public collections with notable institutions including Chicago ’s DuSable Museum of African American History, Johnson Publishing Company, The State of Illinois Centennial Collection and Malcolm X Community College.

As an arts interviewer, Anna interviewed Fitzhugh Dinkins for the Smithsonian Archives of American Art Oral History Program and was often called upon for her clarity and understanding outside of the Academy for critique and appraisal.

Younger scholars and historians have sought out Anna’s unique voice and have interviewed her for programming at Chicago’s Public Television station, WTTW, and most recently for inclusion in Janet Sheard’s documentary, Passions, Dreams, and and Obsessions:  Artists at Work in Their Studios Part II.
