Several years after graduating from university, Theresa was given the opportunity to work abroad and travel the world. She visited many places during this time including Turkey, Russia, Scandinavia, South America, Africa and Europe and was greatly inspired by the diversity of the people and their cultures. She was also able to immerse herself in the art and architecture of the many countries she visited and was especially inspired and moved by the masterpieces she saw in Italy, Turkey, Greece and the Hermitage Museum in Russia.
Art continues to play a significant role in Theresa’s life and she enjoys sharing her love of art with others through the portraits she creates. She feels privileged to be able to capture cherished family moments with a unique, one of a kind piece of art that can be treasured for a life time.
Theresa met her husband, Klaus, while working abroad. They live in Hamilton with their son Tristan..
