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 literal and metaphoric. She works with both digital and physical methods of image making.
Interested in the stories behind found photographs, Teresa investigates, reimagines, and 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.
Over the last eighteen months Teresa has made a collection of collage images inspired by current global situations, as well as more personal photographs ‘straight out of the camera’. She has also kept busy participating in online workshops as well as leading some in book making. She is a core member of The Visual Art Collective (an international postal collaboration with other artists), and has a forthcoming exhibition at Photo Oxford in the autumn, postponed from last year.
