She describes art as her place of solace, her own little space where she can create wonders. With just a pencil and a drawing pad, she is armed and ready to work her magic!
Her drawings bring inanimate things to life and through them she is able to share her own story with the rest of the world.
Urban Craft had a one-on-one with the talented young lady that is Theresa Banda and she gave us insight into her own world while at the same time opening up about her own aspirations. Below is how our chat with the 20-year old Hatfield, Harare artist went.

When and where did you first discover that you could draw?

Theresa: In preschool. I wasnt like other kids who drew stick men. I drew proper fleshy humans. In a nutshell, i can say i was utterly unique and creative.

Do you still remember what your first drawing was?

Theresa: Well, not really. The first drawing i actually kept was a portrait of Katherine Jenkins which i drew on the 29th of December in 2009 at the age of 12.

Where do you draw inspiration from when it comes to your drawings?

Theresa: Nothing and noone inspires me other than myself. Every drawing i work on inspires me to do another.

What tools do you use when it comes to your art?

Theresa: Well, just a clutch pencil and an Hb pencil. It's funny how i can do wonders with these two, but who knows what i can do with a full art set.

Can you share with us some of your goals in as far as the art of drawing in concerned?

Theresa: I would like to venture into Architecture, design and technology. Through this i can totally take my talent to another level.

From all the talents you could choose from, what is it that attracted you towards the art of drawing? What gives it that appeal to you?

Theresa: Art speaks! Behind every drawing there's a story or a theme. It could be love, loneliness, happiness etc. However, i do find solace in drawing and that's what draws me to it.

For the benefit of those not familiar with you, can you tell us in brief about yourself?

Theresa: I am a perfectionist, especially when it comes to drawing. I can be very funny and accomodative. Get to know me and you won't regret it.
