Teresa’s  stu­dio in Corn­wall is close to the Rivers Lyn­her and Tamar as well as  Dart­moor. It is sur­rounded by many coast paths, seas and estu­ar­ies from where she derives most of her inspiration. Her work is rooted in the nature and effects of land­scape and seascape  through chang­ing emo­tions, move­ment, light and colour. The visual lan­guage used reflects the con­stant con­nec­tion with the ele­ments through daily walks.
I think of my work as poetic and sen­sual, the cre­at­ing of paint­ings being visual con­ver­sa­tions.” From ini­tial response to a sub­ject, after obser­va­tional draw­ing, the imag­i­na­tion takes over and instinct and inno­va­tion pro­duce com­pelling can­vases which in the end are as much about the paint on the sur­face as about the place that inspired them.”

Sub­jects range from land and seascape to  still life objects, often com­bin­ing the two.  Still Life objects are often  placed within land­scapes, gar­dens or inte­ri­ors to cre­ate excit­ing dis­rup­tions to the spaces and chal­leng­ing colour com­bi­na­tions.  Teresa  gained a BA 1st class hon­ours degree in paint­ing from the Uni­ver­sity of Hert­ford­shire in 1996 and has since worked full time as an artist, exhibit­ing in gal­leries nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally.   Her work is now in many  col­lec­tions worldwide.
