"Beautiful, Passionate, Soul-Touching"
Passion, joy, love, and love of learning are lifelong themes for Teresa, and are finding full expression in her realistic and hyperrealistic drawings and paintings. Though mainly an autodidact, she has been fortunate to have the opportunity to study hyperrealism in graphite with Dirk Dzimirsky, hyperrealism and hi-definition oil with Giuseppe Muscio, has been blessed to study with the great caricature and realistic portrait artist, Jason Seiler, and is currently being mentored by portrait master Scott Waddell.
"Beautiful, passionate, and soul-touching," Teresa’s works reach deeply into the hearts of viewers, creating a sense of oneness and connection. She works in precise detail, embracing an expression of realness that extends beyond the possibilities of photography, making her pieces immediately recognizable.
Teresa has had the opportunity to experience a variety of careers, playing flute professionally, teaching, hosting a radio show, and writing, including an Amazon bestselling book. She experiences all of these as being different expressions of the same energy, and sees hyperrealism as the next step in her development as an Artist. Teresa is currently living and working in Japan, where she is honored to be an artist in residence at the Hane Gallery in Nara.
