welcome to the world as seen through my eyes

“As long as I can remember, I had a need to take things that were broken and put them together to create a balanced composition. It is a need in all of us in whatever we do to find a sense of stability, order and harmony. “ t. knowles

Therese Knowles is a native of New Orleans and growing up around the Mid-City cemeteries, she found inspiration in the beauty of cemetery art. This influence is still found in her art today both as a painter and ceramic artist.  The strength of her colors, both in paint and in clay, reflects the intensity of her feelings for others.  Her paintings exhibit a reflective expression of life and people’s connection to one another.  Just like all people are one-of-a-kind, so is each piece of her work.
