Biltmore Estate and others

Teresa as been commissioned by the Biltmore Estate for 17 years and has completed four series of drawings capturing the grandeur of the house and gardens.

She has also been commissioned by the U.S. Forest service, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and the Western N.C. Diocese of the Episcopal Church to render drawings as fund raising campaigns. Her newest project will be a series to raise money for the Southern Appalachians Highlands Conservancy, an organization dedicated to preserving land bordering our area's national forests. Her colored pencil drawings are reproduced as lithographs, giclees (digital prints) on paper and giclees on canvas. Many of her limited edition prints have sold out, creating a secondary market for her work.
