Theresa L. Halbert

Theresa Lee Halbert (AKA Teri) is a multi-media fiber artist (for lack of a better term). She utilizes beads, fabrics, found items, trims and paint, (Or whatever else she can get her hands on.) creating 3-D art, quilts, art bags, etc ... She is very inspired by patterns, color and texture and draws inspiration from history, fantasy, other cultures, fairy tales, nature ... Basically anything that draws her eye.

She spent over 20 years as a professional costumer in film and theater and has had her work shown all over the world. When she left the costuming world, she was invited to attend Orycon by a friend (Since she has a deep love for science fiction and fantasy) and there discovered the wonderful world of costuming for herself (What a concept!) She has won Best of Show for workmanship at Norwescon and her group entry at Renovation won Best Journeyman for Steampunk Wizard of Oz. (She was the Tin Woman for those of you who saw the masquerade.

She realized she wanted to take her love of fabric and beads to the next level and started creating art. Teri has entered into both Norwescon and Orycon (Where she won Director's choice for her piece "Mermaid Box".) and has received wonderful feedback on artwork.

Teri currently resides in Seattle and in her day job she works as an apparel developer with Eddie Bauer.(Aha! ... she works with fabric and fashion ... it's a good life!) She has her MFA in Costume Design from USC. She is extremely proud to be making her first Worldcon appearance in her home town of Chicago. She would like to thank her husband Thor, her daughter Nyya and her friends and family for all of their love and support.
