Terra Goolsby is an Austin-based artist painter and sculptor who explores mythology and femininity through gothic, psychologically-charged works. She received a BFA in painting and sculpture from the University of Texas at Austin and an MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has been an artist in residence at West Dean College of Sussex University in Chichester, England, Vermont Studio Center, and I-Park Foundation in New Hampshire.

While studying sculpture at RISD, Terra complemented her artistic interests through independent study at Brown University, where she focused on the deconstruction of mythology.
