Theresa-Anne Mackintosh was born in 1968 in Pretoria. She obtained a BA (Fine Arts) degree and MA (Fine Arts) degree, the latter with distinction from the University of Pretoria in 1995, where she majored in painting. Mackintosh works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, animation, photography and other digital media. Her working methodology extends across these different platforms.

In her work, Mackintosh draws on a rich referential vocabulary. She intuitively employs relevant form and tone dialogues, interjected with autobiographical context which she reconstitutes to produce new meanings. This is a highly individual language. On first reading, the work presents a strong graphic presence, but on further investigation, a refined open ended dialogue begins to unfold.

Mackintosh has had numerous solo exhibitions in South Africa, including 'Jackie the Kid', KZNSA Gallery, KwaZulu Natal, 'if you say so', Standard Bank Gallery, Johannesburg and most recently 'Menagerie' and 'The Young Ones' at Gallery MOMO also in Johannesburg. Mackintosh attended a three month working residency programme at the EKWC (European Ceramic Work Centre) in the Netherlands and has work in various private and public collections.
