Theresa Otteson was born in Provo, Utah and lived in California, Illinois, and Utah as a child. She was blessed with a boringly normal well-adjusted childhood full of love. After high school she attended Utah State University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology. She met her husband there and had two beautiful daughters. She soon found she couldn’t live without her art so she attended the University of Utah where she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Art. She immediately moved to Germany where she travelled, drew, painted, and visited many of the European museums. After three years she moved to Utah where she worked as the Education Coordinator for the Bountiful/Davis Art Center for three years. She now works in her studio, exhibits, and teaches group and private lessons. I am blessed to be able to share my passion for art through teaching. It is gratifying to see students’ excitement when they create something new that they didn’t feel capable of doing before. You will find my art in galleries, public buildings, and private collections in Europe, Japan and the United States.
