Theresa Wilshusen

Theresa is an American, multidisciplinary artist from Kansas City, Missouri. She is currently living and creating in Valencia, Spain. Theresa is influenced by her own personal experiences using color, texture, and imagery from her travels around the world. Cultural influence plays a large role in her work, especially from the people she meets and their personal stories.

Theresa often experiments with various materials, manipulating them to achieve a particular desired result or to simply explore a new medium. She enjoys incorporating maps and texts into her work as an identifier that the spectator can relate with. Her work is often motivated by geographic imagery, as well as found natural objects.
