Teresa is the daughter of Barbara Weir. She was born in Darwin but spent time in Papunya with her mother. Teresa has been painting since 1990. Her paintings are highly detailed and her current work has an underlying influence from Barbara's 'My Mothers Country' series. During the past ten years Teresa has tended to paint for selected galleries in the area that she is living. In the past she has painted for Framed Gallery in Darwin, Fremantle Gallery, Pearl Art Gallery in Broome, and is now currently painting for Mbantua Gallery. Teresa exhibited with Barbara in Sydney in 2001 and an earlier work was successfully sold through Sotheby's Auction May 2000.

The Red Centre Garden opened in Canberra's botanic garden in October 2013. The pavement artwork in the garden is based on artwork by Teresa.

Description

In this painting Teresa depicts her grandmother's country, Atnwengerrp.

Her designs show some of the significant sites of Atnwengerrp country as well as land formations such as sand hills and White Quartz Hill, campsites, flora, fauna, Awelye (Women's Ceremony), spiritual figures and ancestral dancing tracks, as they can still be seen today, etched in the rocks at Anthep. This ancestral place remains the most significant site on Atnwengerrp country for Teresa's people. Ceremony and dance are still performed there. It is a place where everyone - men, women and children can meet together and camp. It is also a place where permanent water can be found.
