Teresa (preferably known by her nickname of 'T') is a professional pastel artist specialising in safari wildlife.
After being made redundant from managing incentive travel events at the end of 2019, she went back over 15 years to rediscover and revive her neglected artistic roots. It took a considerable amount of confidence building but she taught herself her own pastel techniques through practice and intuition.
Her extensive adventures observing animals in their natural habitat have become a great source of inspiration for her artwork. She creates compositions that play with light or enhance particular characteristics, from textures in the skin or fur to the expressive magnetism of the eyes. Her portfolio showcases each animal subject detailed in all its glory, purposefully undistracted by a background with deeper meanings behind the work to provide an extra layer of connection to the viewer.
T's safari tales have been featured in BBC Wildlife magazine, she's been featured in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire Living magazines and she's had work on display at the Gallery@Oxo in London.
