Tereza prefers to work with wool, silk and cotton. She also likes to recycle material such as copper wires, tea bags and various other natural elements.
She creates felted scarves, three dimensional vessels with silk fibres, and also tea bag and wire sculptures.
Tereza says that the shape and colour of nature influences her creations. The changing seasons offer “the here and now” and inspiration for new work emerges. The synthesis of colour in her work is a strong element which pushes the boundaries in order to create an exciting new piece of textile.
Teresa comes from an academic career in nursing and sociology. She found that artistic creations enhanced the quality of her teaching and brought PEACE and DELIGHT. She trained as a textile artist by participating in workshops with amazing instructors.
Tereza has participated in two major exhibitions in Melbourne and taught students the art of textiles. The exhibitions were in October 2009 entitled Fantasy Revealed at the Highway Gallery Mount Waverley, and in August 2010 entitled Carnival at the Wyreena Art Gallery at Maroondah Council. She has also exhibited at the Alcove Art Shop Exhibition at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre for several years.
