You can even feel the temperature, as Teresa invokes the atmosphere and beauty of seasons changing in the natural landscape.
We asked the artist…
My work is generally to do with colour, shape and pattern whether this be abstract work or inspired by what’s around me. Sometimes I create patterns in what I’m observing and at other times I let the materials react to the surface and then develop what I see there.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by the natural environment and by the work of other artists. It’s truly amazing seeing how other people work and the variety of ideas they have.
What materials do you generally use?
I use inks, watercolours, acrylics, acrylic inks and a range of dry drawing materials. I like to combine materials and use different types of paper too. I’ve just started experimenting with digital art on an iPad which is very exciting.
What has been your favourite project to work on so far?
I like everything I do and each piece of work is a surprise. I’ve recently really enjoyed discovering and using Dr PH Martin lightfast inks in different ways. The colours are just amazing and the effects on wet and dry surfaces are beautiful.
What are you currently working on?
At present, I’m working on a series of local landscapes as well as developing ideas for online art teaching which I have been doing on a regular basis since the first lockdown. It’s been a bit of a challenge but thinking of new ideas that can be taught remotely has made me more aware of the step by step processes of creating art work.
Where can we find more of your work?
I post images of my work on Instagram under @teresanegusart.
