Rivercentre Photography the work of Theresa Moran
Growing up Theresa Moran always had an interest in art and drawing.

She was brought up as a foster child by Sandy Jim and Lizzie MacDonald on East Street in Port Hood. She was born in Glace Bay as Theresa Marie Osbourne, and her musical and artistic talents stem from there.
“I was encouraged to follow my interests. I think I bought my first camera at age 17 or so, and I’ve had many since that time. I’ve been doing photography now for quite some time, but of course it wasn’t until I raised my family that I really began to pursue it on a more serious basis. I have two children and three grandchildren,” Moran told The Oran recently from her home in Glencoe Station where she also runs a small studio.
“Because I’ve always loved photography I really started to spend more time on it with my digital cameras about six years ago. It’s been a real passion of mine,” she added.
This past year Moran has shown some of her work locally at the Chestico Museum in Port Hood and the Port Hood RV Park and at the Chestico Days Festival last summer.
“I’m selling photographs and getting a lot of interest for my work on Facebook,” she added.
Moran credits her husband Blaise, a contractor who has always had a big interest in music, with being a great supporter of her photographic interests.
“He helps me and I help him in the construction business and with the golf driving range that we recently set up here at home,” she added.
Moran has no trouble finding subject matter for her photography.
She loves to photograph nature in all its seasons and takes portraits, does anniversaries, landscape, family, animal and passport photos.
“I enjoy the variety,” says Moran.
