About the Art
What the artist saysThese harmonious shapes cultivate calm even when juxtaposed against vibrant colors to evoke an energetic playfulness. The ease of the resulting work is supported by a palpable rhythm and movement.
Why we like itTheresa’s work is delightfully maximalist. We love the way its vibrancy complements an organic simplicity.
Where we hang itThese pieces work as a series: collect all three for a hallway gallery moment.

“My work unfolds intuitively; it is a process in which I find balance, harmony, and movement through color and abstract form.”
