Thelma Skye Zaracostas

Born in Sydney Australia in the Eastern Suburbs of Greek and Australian extract was a very colourful experience to say the least. Both parents were creative so art was encouraged. Worked as a Veterinary Nurse, Gymnastics teacher, face and body artists for about 30 years . I would often create art whenever I could in between.  After moving to Wollongong in the 90s I by chance enrolled in TAFE, Fine Art course in 2006 and it was a life and art changing experience. The rest is history. Currently I am working as an Art Educator at the Wollongong art gallery and have been involved in many community projects. I work with all mediums often using recycled materials collected. Being a member of IAVA, I have been a committee member and during that time I also managed the Hanging space art gallery at Woonona. Having a range of interests drives my focus towards various themes. Portraiture, environmental issues, capturing local and historic residences and landscapes. I have a love for nature and my surround which is expressed often through my art.
I am currently working from ‘Barracks Art Studios Thirroul’.
