Thérèse Mulgrew grew up on a farm outside of Dubuque, Iowa. Influenced by her mother's surreal oil paintings and her grandmother's impressionist still lifes, she began to cultivate her own style which focuses mainly on portraying portraits and still life in oil paint.
She took a variety of studio art classes at the University of Iowa, where she graduated as an English literature major. Immediately after, she moved to NYC where she studied at The Art Students League and New York Studio School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture. She currently resides in Chicago, IL.
