Intro
Therese Hilbert was born 1948 in Zurich.

Since 1969 she exhibits internationally. Here works are in public collections in Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Boston, Dallas, Frankfurt, Hanau, Houston, Jerusalem, Melbourne, Munich, New York, Pforzheim, Tokyo and Vienna. She lives and works in Munich.

Statement

Essentially I work for myself.
It is like standing up and being counted.
Created with passion.
Sometimes I need jewelry-making to live, like eating and drinking.
I often get suggestions from without, but the voice in my gut is louder.
It is this voice that carries me on; I trust it.
