(Theresa Nicholas first came to Corfu in 1961. In her art she has recorded Corfiot life as she knew it from the early days, as it used to be lived. Theresa has followed her eye and in consequence has witnessed aspects of life in Corfu that few foreigners have been privileged to see. She started illustrating Corfu scenes soon after she arrived, but much of her work was commercial. "I churned them out for tourists," she admits. But they gave her a means of survival until 1980, when she started doing more serious work, experimenting with mixed media compositions, as well as linocuts, woodcuts, monoprints, etchings and oil-paintings. She has exhibited in Corfu, in 1996, 2002 and 2004.)
