TUTOR: Therese O'Donoghue
Starting her first small business in 1999, Therese has created her own range of products from niche greeting cards that are still in production, stationery, and art products. She has worked extensively with artists and designers to develop their ranges and seek suitable markets for sales growth. Therese worked as a sales agent with The Agent Group for 7 years representing leading local and international brands, then 2013 starting Paper Empire Australia making artworks & representing artists with her partner Stefan Gevers. In 2018 a consolidation of business interests bought Therese & Stefan back into one studio where a range of classes are offered and where all of Stefans collections are now under the one banner, with Therese as Studio Manager.
"With a background in artist mentoring, manufacturing, sales, marketing and product development, you will be given access to over 18 years of my experience as a small business owner, and what I have learnt by representing many creative businesses. I am passionate about building strong creative industries that thrive in a changing world. I look forward to creating an open and supportive environment where knowledge is shared and participants come away feeling inspired!"
