Teresa creates complex and colourful handcrafted collages inspired by ancient cultures, esoteric wisdom and the beauty of the natural world. Teresa has been using collage as a tool for exploring consciousness and deepening self-awareness for over 20 years. For the past few years she has been exploring feminine archetypes through the lens of mythology and astrology. Teresa is also a spiritual counsellor and a specialist in the Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa. For over ten years she has been studying with the Medicine Woman Centre for Esoteric & Shamanic Studies and attending silent meditation retreats in the Buddhist tradition. Teresa graduated from Whanganui’s Quay School of the Arts in 2000 where she majored in photography. In 2007 she graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Art and Design from AUT. Teresa is co-founder of LUMEN Studios & Gallery, an artist-run space in Tataraimaka where she is a resident artist.
