Therese Lydia Joseph was born and educated in Switzerland, where she taught Kindergarten for several years. From a very young age, Therese used her vivid imagination to restlessly invent and create all kinds of things. She learned and mastered many forms for art. 

Therese married and moved to North Vancouver, where she shared her talents and skills with children at her privately owned after-school activity clubs. She became a valued individual in her community and was selected to use her artistic talents to manage several community funded art projects with children and teens. Therese is also a published writer and illustrator of five children’s books in French, which are presently used in French Immersion Schools throughout Canada. After raising her two sons, Therese enrolled herself in art classes at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her new found passion for intuitive figurative-abstract art grew quickly into a full time career. 

Therese approaches the canvas with enthusiasm and spontaneity. Using acrylics and mixed media allows her to create without limits. She loves bright colours, texture and detail in her work. Her figurative abstract works derive from within. She thoroughly enjoys seeing how personality and temperament come into being from an empty canvas. Mostly she portrays women caught in a moment in time. Her aim is to capture an honest thought, a genuine mood, and a daring dream in the expression of her subjects. 

Therese has received several grants and awards and exhibits her work in Canada and Europe. Presently, she is working from her home based studio in North Vancouver.
