Join us as we welcome Theresa Markiw to Muse Vineyards!
Theresa Markiw was born in Montreal, Canada of Ukrainian émigrés and grew up in New Jersey. She began studying art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art at the age of eight, followed by a decade at the Barn Studio of Art in Millville, New Jersey, with renowned marsh painter and mentor, Pat Witt. In 1979 Markiw received a BFA in Visual Arts from Concordia University in Montreal.
“I have been making art since I could hold a crayon. It started with clouds, sunflowers, and alligators, and grew from there . . .”
From childhood Theresa Markiw was strongly influenced by a love of nature and the Ukrainian art traditions into which she was born.
She has studied art since she was a little girl, and throughout her life has expanded her aesthetic understanding and artistic vocabulary through teaching others, traveling and museum-hopping around the world, and living abroad in Europe, Asia, and Eurasia.
