About

Theresa is a fine arts student currently studying at the University of Pittsburgh. With a concentration in new media/sculpture, she loves working with all kinds of materials in all different scales. She discovered her passion for millinery when she studied at Columbia College Chicago in 2010-2011. Under the instruction of Linda Campisano, she learned the bare minimum of the trade, and has been obsessively honing her craft ever since. Theresa's hats and other work display a simple and dark beauty inspired by gothic architecture, 18th-19th century fashion, and modern steam punk design. Some of her favorite artists include Tim Burton, Dali, Poe, Mark Rothko, and Edward Gorey.

In addition to her hats, Theresa illustrates herself in sculpture and installation art. Her works often include simple kinetic and electrical engineering that allow her pieces to move and interact with their viewers. She is currently working on branching out into public art to share her works with the world.

"My love for mechanics and engineering launched my interest in installation art. I enjoy working with all types of materials and spaces, and in the future I hope to branch out into working with recycled materials. I approach all my work with a “breaking the boundaries” attitude. My ultimate goal as an artist is to break the “museum boundary wall”. I seek to make deeply meaningful and powerful pieces that allow the viewer to physically interact with the work, creating an experience rather than a display. As I continue in my work I will further develop my kinetic sculptures, interactive sculptures and installations that truly capture all of a viewers senses." - Theresa
