Writing in 1992, Thérèse said as a child her “favorite game was drawing.” Although mainly self-taught, Thérèse attended workshops with many artists including Molly Lamb Bobak. Thérèse D’Amour died in O’Leary, P.E.I., on December 23, 2013, at the age of 92. Her work continues to be highly regarded among P.E.I. artists.
