Teri has had a passion for art since childhood. She found an affinity for oil painting in high school, specifically impressionist landscapes and abstract expression. She also developed a passion for photography. Growing up in the Midwest, Teri explored the nature around her, relishing in the rich forests, abundant lakes and flowing rivers where she spent her summers.
She entered college as a design major, spending her first two years studying Fine Art and Three-dimensional Design. Trips to the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Walker Gallery, among others, exposed her to the great masters, and a broader range of artistic expression. She put herself through college working for the University’s Interior Design department, where she created student spaces that aimed to be more stimulating and less institutional. She deployed her artistic talents to the design and execution of several murals. Developing large format art as a structural component in living spaces inspires her still.
After graduating from college, she spent over two decades in Colorado. Her experiences in and around the Rocky Mountains, Southern Utah, and the Southwest continue to influence her color palette. Her fascination with water, and how it transforms matter and light, is evident in most of her work, as is her intrigue with all things celestial.
Her approach involves the layering of transparent pigments, continuously experimenting with the interplay between depth and reflection, matter and energy. She loves the fluidity of manipulating pigment with palette knives and the surprises that surface. Her work reflects the vibrational interpretation of nature, always nurturing even in cycles of renewal, as she discovers it. Her spirituality is ever evolving as is her art. The concept of vibration being the foundation of all things defines how she views the world around her, and her definition of love and beauty.
There is a freedom of expression working in the abstract that Teri finds liberating. She hesitates to apply a title, as without one, the viewer is left to their own interpretation, one typically more meaningful for them. There is always a balance then, between the painting as an extension of the artist and that of the admirer.
There is great love here for you.
