Teresa was born in St. Catharines, Ontario and her fondest memories involved pencil crayons and art books her mother always had in their home. Teresa was interested in the work of the Impressionists’ vision of art, from the dreamy works of Monet to the bold colours of Van Gogh.
Teresa ventured into photography following retirement. Living in Vancouver sparked a passion for floral photography. The amazing array of plants in the lower mainland, exquisite gardens and endless nature trails became outdoor studios for her. During the final processing of her images, she also uses a variety of techniques and tools to enhance the innate beauty of the floral photograph. Teresa continues to look for new approaches and techniques to further enhance her fine art photography by attending workshops in Canada and the United States.
Teresa’s work has been on display at Waterloo Region art galleries, artgalleryofguelph.ca, eloracentreforthearts.ca & framesbyvern, cafés, local garden centres, whistlinggardens.ca & belgian-nursery.com.juried craft shows and at the University of Waterloo. She is an active member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art [CAPA] and the Grand River Imaging & Photographic Society [GRIPS]. In 2019, she submitted 4 images to CAPA in a nation-wide competition and was awarded an honourable mention for these images. She recently had an article published in the Spring, 2020 edition of Canadian Camera Magazine, the official publication of CAPA.
Teresa’s floral photography captures the innate beauty and complexity of the subject and asks you to look deeper into its world. Spend some time to discover the allure and intricacy of nature’s creations. She hopes that her work will draw you in and leave you with a sense of calm and wonderment.
