About Therese Eberhard

Therese Eberhard

I was born in Palo Alto, California in 1965. I grew up on the West coast of the U.S.A. Spending time in Denver Co, Oregon, and various parts of California. I always had an desire to paint and draw. My High School art teacher further fuelled this desire by entering my work in local art shows. I moved to Laguna Beach California after graduating. That was where I would start my journey as a Scenic Artist. With determination I knocked on doors and apprenticed where I could. I started with fine art, interiors, and hand painted textiles. Through the years I would continue to knock on doors and travel (my desire to learn and create never dying), that eventually lead me to Theatre and Film. It is Film (King Kong) that brought me to Wellington, New Zealand. I have continued to work in NZ and currently reside in Strathmore Park with my daughter.

I now have 25+ years’ experience painting finishes for commercial and private interiors, Film (props and sets), Theatre, Casinos, themed environments, and Museums. I love sharing my passion and talent with young people who are keen to learn and create.

Therese has an impressive list of film credits to her name. Here is her IMDB page
