Various materials and media are used in Anne Marie Jehle's work. In various painterly or graphic techniques, in objects or installations, the artist is never concerned with the surface or the pure form, but rather with message and content. Her imagery is dialectical and associative, her work ethically and critically deals with society, the economy, the phenomena of power, the sexes, with religious and ecclesiastical structures as well as with everyday phenomena. It addresses questions of gender-specific role models in society and in the art world.

Individual exhibitions and participations from the nineteen sixties onwards bear witness to an international orientation and networking. She was denied major successes and extensive accolades in exhibitions during her lifetime. Today, your work is archived in the “Anne Marie Jehle Foundation” in Vaduz (Liechtenstein), scientifically processed and exhibited on a case-by-case basis. The artistic estate includes objects, paintings, graphics , drawings, silhouettes , collages , monotypes , Polaroid works , photographs, and spatial presentations.


The Hittisau Women's Museum dedicated a month-long exhibition to her in 2013/2014 and a month-long retrospective exhibition in 2009 at Palais Liechtenstein in Feldkirch .
