Teresa's art studio is based in Somerset, but her background includes a BA in Scenography from the National Conservatory of Lisbon, studies in the N. Association of Fine Arts of Lisbon, and an eclectic career path in Design for Performance and Decorative Painting. She developed her expression through several materials, mediums and sizes, switching between areas: from theatrical props, costumes design, to murals and furniture, canvases, paper and digital softwares. 

As Subjects in painting, there is landscapes, seascapes and portraits; in acrylics, watercolours and approaches to oils. Her illustrations are featured with outlines in ink and include humorous drawings for children.

Clients from Portugal and Somerset have bought Teresa's Fine arts and prints, at Dunster Castle retail shop, Home Coming, Clematis Cottage, Doniford Farm Park, as well as from wide world, through

I accept commissions for portraits and personal scenes, in watercolour.

I am developing my presence online as well as in galleries as recently participating on 2020 All Animal - CAGO exhibition, and competing for entry the Annual Exhibition of The Pastel Society.
