Born Cape Town in 1963, Theresa is currently living and working in Hout Bay.

Theresa enjoyed art at school winning the art prize in Matric.

She studied architecture for 2 years and worked in the industry for 4 years, but veered off course for some decades into an IT career.

Increasingly missing the creative world, she achieved an animation diploma at The Animation School, graduating in 2012.

In 2016 she decided to commit full-time to working as an artist. 

Her work has found homes in Beijing, Switzerland, Germany and the United States.
