Artist StatementMany years ago, Therese Verner started her artistic career creating and designing custom stained glass windows. Her creations were sold and installed in dozens of homes throughout the Los Angeles area. After a long and distinguished software career, she returned to artistic endeavors.
A self-taught artist, Therese specializes in creating oil paintings and mixed-media works inspired by her love of nature and the cosmos. Even though she is legally blind, she has enough sight to create works of art to brighten others’ lives.
Therese was awarded a 2018 Arts and Accessibility Grant by the National Arts and Disability Center.
Therese's solo Art Exhibition at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts included 60 artworks, see
