Inspired early in her life by the vibrant illustrations of N.C Wyeth, and visits to the art galleries in near by Carmel, California,  Teresa was extremely driven to learn the skills that it takes to be an artist.  That drive has resulted in many different forms of art, but the vital elements remain constant in her work.  Light, color, and emotion are the substance of every piece she undertakes.

Teresa wakes up every day in the small central coast town where she was born, to the beauty of the Monterey Bay and the delightful fact that she gets to live and work as an artist.
