Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Theresa is predominantly a two dimensional artist. She works with a variety of mediums, from acrylic, charcoal, pastel oil and mixed media, depending on the required qualities of the subject. Canvas is her preferred choice of support, as it lends itself well to washes and treatments she likes to apply to her work.
Enjoying the process of developing a story within her pictures, Theresa sometimes begins with a vague idea, then allows the process and story to evolve as she works. It’s a process she finds interesting, challenging, and almost spiritual in its approach.
A contemplative artist studying, drawing, watching and listening to her subjects before taking them to the canvas, she strives to have movement and evoke feeling. Composition is also important to her as she endeavours to make unusual placement work and gain a balance through the development of colour and form.
