Born in Melbourne in 1931, Therea Frances Kennedy, gained a two-year art scholarship whilst attending secondary school serving as a basis for her understanding of several mediums and her appreciation of the Master, both old and contemporary.
She paints principally in oils and concentrates on landscapes painted in a traditional reallist style with an individual knife and brush technique.
As a direct descendant of a farming family from the north-east of Victoria, she has a particular love for this part of Australia, particularly the Ovens, Buckland and King Valleys with their impressive scenery. She also travels extensively through other areas of Australia in search of subject matter. Theresa Kennedy has been the recipient of several awards, notably the H.C. Sleigh $1,000 award for oils (1980) and her work has featured in several successful exhibitions.
She is represented in collections both public and private throughout Australia and overseas.
Theresa Kennedy died in 1982. Edit or add to this biography
