Theresa Moleski

Theresa Moleski has always had a love for art and color ever since she could sit and hold a crayon under her own power, which was no easy feat!

At birth, Theresa was given up for adoption. She showed no signs of ever being able to walk and was scheduled to live out her life in an institution. Luckily, Theresa was taken home by a foster family at the age of two where she was given encouragement, exercise and hope. By the age of six years old, Theresa took her first steps.

Nature, art and humour saw Theresa through her toughest times while growing up.

In 1986 Theresa graduated from early childhood education. From 1986-2012 she offered creative art classes to children as young as two and six years old. Theresa knows the value of art and how cathartic it can be for people who look for ways to express themselves.

Theresa’s art shines through with her varying techniques, whether she’s drawing or painting. Her claim to fame are her Whispering Stones. These stones are brilliantly painted with a multitude of paints. Theresa is meticulous when it comes to detailing her artwork, so much so that she hears messages of encouragement, inspiration or simple reminders of how strong and valued you are; hence “Whispering Stones.”
