Thérèse has lived in Reading for over 30 years and uses the town as inspiration for her work. She spent some happy hours in Reading's reference library finding examples of Reading from early photographs and has turned some of these into a 'concertina' sketchbook of the town. Many of the scenes captured become greeting cards with the history of the place on the back. Some of her work has represented Reading with its twin town of Dusseldorf and she has been commissioned to depict many local buildings for promotions or as presents. She is very happy to discuss commissions.
