Therese grew up at the Santa Teresa Mission, South East of Alice Springs, living in a dormitory and being cared for by Catholic nuns. The girls were taught cooking, sewing and house cleaning. Drawing lessons were given once a week at school.

There are references to a number of staff at the mission encouraging drawing and painting - Sister Therese Marie, Sister Anastasia, Dr Ethel Robertson and Mr. Sawjack. These were strong influences in the development of the landscape painting. It is interesting to note from text that the immerging artists from Santa Teresa were only partially aware of Albert Namatjira and his fame as a watercolourist landscape painter. Therese, Kathleen Wallace, Gabriella Wallace and others entered work in the Alice Spring Show often winning prizes.

Therese moved to Alice Springs and has been painting ever since in both landscape style and more traditional dot style interpreting bush foods.

Description

This landscape by Therese reflects the colour and formation of the many ranges, hills, gorges and flora that are found in her country, Santa Teresa, West of Alice Springs in Central Australia. This country truly has the blue and purple colours of the ranges in the distance, the rich colour in the sand and an amazing contrast when the plentiful flora is in bloom.
