After studying art at Thurrock, and Coventry School of Art & Design, Theresa worked as a freelance Illustrator using linocut and monoprint, editioning for artists, and learning about etching techniques.
Together with a group of fellow graduates, they were awarded a Prince’s Trust Grant to set up a Silk-Screen Workshop. Theresa eventually established her own etching studios in Kingsgate Workshops, Kilburn. She currently teaches printmaking at Hampstead School of Art, and belongs to Southbank Printmakers, an artists-run gallery and Printmakers Council (Co - Chair). Theresa exhibits throughout the UK including the Royal Academy, Mall Galleries: “Originals” and “Bite” and the Barbican.
Her work features in collections at the V&A, Metropolitan University, Scarborough Art Gallery Archive and worldwide.
