Therese Ritchie is a practicing artist, experienced writer, portrait photographer and graphic designer. She has been living and working in the Northern Territory for over 30 years, co-owning GreenAnt Research Arts and Publishing in the 90s and then forming her own business, Black Dog Graphics, in 2002.
Therese began her graphic design career in the 90s—before the digital era—so her experience is both traditional and digital. Her expertise is print-based, but she also does web design; logo design; business stationery; signage; books; annual reports; DVDs, vehicles; posters; flyers; copy writing; illustrations and branding.
Therese enjoys portraiture photography and delivers intimate, beautiful and original portraits working with and for clients from children, people and their pets, to larger groups such as Indigenous communities wishing to communicate their ideas and culture to a wider audience.
As a practicing artist, Therese has been exhibiting her work for over 20 years and is in collections such as the National Gallery of Australia; Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory; Araluen Arts Centre; Gallery of Modern Art Queensland; Artbank; Flinders University; Charles Darwin University.
