A Spanish surrealist, Teresa Gostanza’s work is both mesmerizing and mysterious. She was born in Eberbach Germany, raised in Australia and later her family returned to their homeland of Madrid, Spain. As a child of an anarchist father, she was introduced to the horrors of the world at an early age. “My father was very active in political injustices and the family was immersed in voices of reform,” she reports.
Teresa was drawn to art as a child and received her first set of oil paints from her parents when she was twelve. She studied art at the Swinburne tech for arts and rmit in Melbourne, Australia. She has exhibited in Italy, San Francisco, Manhattan, Denver, and now multiple sites in New Mexico. In 2020, Teresa visited Questa, and shortly returned as a permanent resident. Teresa is a hypnotherapist, Reiki teacher and healer.
