Thea Anamara Perkins features in The Australian’s WISH inaugural art issue.
‘Nurtured by a proud lineage, artist Thea Anamara Perkins draws on memory, photographs and story to produce portraits that captivate and inspire.’
‘Culture, in a sense of being active in a community, was a fact of life in the Perkins family. But it wasn’t a given that members of the family would go on to have careers in the creative arts.’
‘Thea continues to draw inspiration from her family, from the emotional and photographic record of memory, and from the ancient culture of which she is a young custodian.’
