Her tales of desire, loss and transformation find their physical form as artists’ books, narrative sculpture and installations.

Teresa has been exhibiting since 1988. Venues have included the Ryerson Library of the Art Institute of Chicago, the New York Center for Book Arts, the Chicago Cultural Center, the James R. Thompson Center’s Illinois Art Gallery and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Her artists’ books are part of special collection libraries throughout the United States.

Teresa is also a freelance illustrator and sole proprietor of Theodora Press, a publisher of handmade, original limited edition artists’ books. She is represented by Vamp & Tramp Booksellers, LLC.

The Eric Yake Kenagy Visiting Artist Program honors the late Eric Yake Kenagy, who was a gifted ceramics student at Goshen College from 1984 until his death in 1986.
