St. Teresa of Avila painting

St t of a painting

I believe this is a painting of St. Teresa of Avila, Carmelite Reformer and Doctor of the Church.  I have to ask a friend who had this picture if this is correct but given the woman is a Carmelite nun, has the dove as the Holy Spirit and the book and writing quill (usual added depictions in paintings of St. Teresa), it is probably her.  I really love this painting.
