Teresa is a visual artist who makes multi-layered stories with photography at their core. With an MA in Photography from Falmouth University (2019) and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS), she has been selected to exhibit both in the UK and internationally.
Her work, often playful, explores and reimagines the ordinary. She intervenes with the image, layering to weave threads that are both literal and metaphoric. She works with both digital and physical methods of image making. Interested in the stories behind found photographs, Teresa places them into contemporary settings; repurposing photographs giving her creative freedom to reconnect narratives fractured by the passing of time. In this way she blurs boundaries between fact and fiction.
‘Hub’, a series of digital composites, was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust. It was shown at the Derngate Theatre, with one of the images selected selected for inclusion at the #EveryDayDoraMaar UNIQLO Tates Lates display at Tate Modern in January 2020.
Her largest series to date, ‘Not many people here yet’ was exhibited at the Photo Oxford festival 2021; with two of its digital composites selected for Photograd Zine in February 2022. Two of the pieces 'Crowds at the Cobb' and 'Crowds at Bouley Bay' were selected for the spring 2022 exhibition at the London Lighthouse Gallery.
This year, Teresa has been awarded an a-n bursary to learn animation through a UAL short course.
