Connecting to your creative truth through personal story
In this inspiring and often funny talk, artist Grace Costa talks about her most challenging - and most successful - project to date, and what she learned about herself and her art along the way. Grace Costa’s natural ability to capture expressive images has earned her success over a 17 year career in contemporary & corporate photography. She has built a multi-award- winning portfolio in this time. In 2014, “Portrait of Minika” ensured a finalist position for Grace in the prestigious National Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Grace’s heart lies with contemporary portraiture. Her latest conceptual portraits have developed from her history with horses. “HORSE” has captured the hearts and admiration of many being her most successful exhibition. Grace brings horses into the urban world, standing unbridled and statuesque. Grace has featured in numerous respected Australian publications. She exhibits in both solo and group shows in galleries around Australia, with work acquired for private collections worldwide. Grace is very active in her local community. She enjoys sharing her photography journey and industry knowledge. She mentors students learning the art form, hosts camera master classes and is a guest lecturer at the local TAFE and resident schools.
