Teresa Duryea Wong
My first book Japanese Contemporary Quilts and Quilters was released in 2015 and I am researching and writing two more books. I also make quilts and blog about quilts at thirdfloorquilts.com.
In 2014, I earned a Master of Liberal Studies degree from Rice University and was named the ‘Faith P. and Charles L. Bybee Foundation Scholar’ by the Bybee Foundation and the Texas Quilt Museum for my research on Japanese quilts.
I have a significant business background, specifically in the accounting and financial services arena, but after leaving the corporate world in 2010 I have realized I'm truly an artist at heart. My mother and I are the owners of Quilting Adventures which hosts quiltmaking and fiber art retreats in Central Texas.
My other great loves in life are cooking, attending live performances of my favorite musicians, reading, and exploring the Texas Hill Country. I live in the Gruene Historic District of New Braunfels with my husband, Kurt, and our Boxer fur babies, Victor & Valerie.

I started as a traditional quilter when my mom took me to a Block of the Month club. Since then, I've added art dolls, modern quilting and art quilts. My favorite technique is manipulating fabric with heat. I am obsessed with leaves and trees and use them in a lot of my work. I also like to layer fabrics to give dimension to my work.
