Teresa Porteous

My interest in art began in the fourth grade due to an amazing art teacher.  As time passed, I became intrigued with the construction of books.  For over thirty years I have been researching, exploring and learning many types of book designs from historical to inventive.

Books are very personal to me.  They have been a refuge in the chaos of life.  I leave my books blank for others to fill with their hopes, dreams, images and stories whether it be words, colors or personal imagery.  

I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alma College and a Masters of Art Education from Wayne State University.  I have been an artist educator for over forty years teaching at Holly, Flint, the Flint Institute of Arts and various art programs around the state.
