Teresa VanHatten-Granath is an artist living in the Denver area of Colorado. She is a former Associate Professor at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.  She taught photography and digital imaging in the Department of Art for 15 years.  She was awarded a Tennessee State Arts Commission Grant in 2010 for her sculptural photographic books and for her work on the Green Bag Lady project. Green Bag Lady is an eco-friendly art project started in 2008. Teresa and her team of volunteer "Bagettes" make fabric bags out of donated material and give them away for FREE in exchange for a promise to use them instead of paper or plastic. To date they have given away over 27,000 bags all over the world.
