A native of Providence RI and involved in the arts from an early age, Theresa crafted her own education studying early 20th Century contemporary artists. A color expert and educator for a large manufacturing company, she advanced to the top of her career in marketing, education, and training. She staged and styled numerous photo shoots, large trade productions, and program development from NY to LA. She has been a teacher of adult education for over 30 years and is a nationally sought after facilitator of a variety of “workshops for creative people.”
She attended Community College of RI, CE Programs RISD & SMFA Tufts. She is represented by several galleries throughout the country. Her painterly abstractions have been featured in several national publications including The Artist Magazine, Palette Magazine, Art Collector, Florida Design, Gulfshore Life, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest and Home & Design.
