Therese is a wife, mother to 3, DIY designer, enthusiastic learner and owner of Fresh Idea Studio.
As a born sales and marketing gal, Therese enjoyed a decade developing her professional skill set and business sense with Coca Cola USA and Eli Lilly in the Fortune 500 world. Blessed with entrepreneurial spirit, Therese designed and built furniture as a teenage "hobby"; and with a lifelong love of styling personal spaces and encouragement from friends and family to embrace her "decorating smarts" as a career she opened Fresh Idea Studio.
Known for beautiful hand-painted furnishings and one-of-a-kind home goods, Therese specializes in custom painting services, in-home decorating and private/group workshops. She's passionate about cheering on the DIY designer hiding in each of us and chronicles her 'how-to' experiences, curating lots of decor favorites and resources on her blog.
And, when she's not DIYing, she loves spending time on long beach vacations with her family.
