Theresa Clowes holds a B.F.A. from Kansas City Art Institute and an M.F.A from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Prior to RMCAD, Theresa was a Senior Instructor at Colorado Academy for 10 years. In addition to teaching, she is a professional artist who has been exploring the properties of textiles for more than 20 years.
Theresa believes that being an artist does not stray far from being a teacher; they both come from the heart and soul. Her artwork incorporates juxtapositions: textiles and architecture, ephemeral fabric and discarded objects, and translucency and opaqueness. She has been a Resident Artist for the past two years at RedLine Arts in Denver and her work has been exhibited locally at RedLine, Ice Cube Gallery, Vertigo Art Space and Edge Gallery, and nationally in Kansas City, Detroit, Houston, Aspen, and Portland, Oregon.
