Teresa knew from a young age that she loved to draw. As a third grad, her sketches of Disney characters convinced her elementary art teacher to admit her to the fourth grade art club. That was the beginning of her career as an artist and a graphic designer. A native of Mississippi, Teresa was encouraged to make her way to the Kansas City Art Institute for Foundations and on to UMKC for a Fine Arts Degree in Painting.
When creating in acrylic, Teresa selects the color palette and the size of the canvas she will use. Then she lets her creative energy take her away. Teresa brings paint to canvas using brushstrokes that range from light and feathery, to bold and three-dimensional, to create deep, vibrant images that pique the imagination of the viewer. Her use of subtle shades of color creates work that draws viewers into the depths of the canvas. Her pieces do not stay in her studio long before they make their way into Kansas City homes.
