β€œMake Every Day A Painting” is about finding the beauty in everyday life. Growing up in the Northwest, has enabled me to appreciate the ambiance of nature and its surroundings. On a cloudy Seattle day, finding the colorful beauty, like a rainbow, inspires me to create. As a young girl, I would paint watercolors with my namesake grandmother, Theresa β€œRose” & acrylics with my mother, Judy. I am a mother of 4 daughters who also lead creative lives. I truly embrace sharing my creativity & passion for fine art by teaching watercolors, oils, acrylics & mixed media, to all levels of artists.”
