A lifelong nature enthusiast, Teri gathers most of her creative ideas by spending time outdoors. She paints primarily in oils at her studio in Niwot, Colorado or in Plein Air in the mountains and farmland of the rural areas near her home as well as flowers from her extensive gardens. After graduation from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Fine Art, she pursued a successful career in interior design, but also continued to develop professionally as an artist. Her subject matter includes birds, animals, flowers, landscapes and still life settings.
“Whether painting a landscape, garden or a still life, I try to leave the observer with an emotional feeling of the moment and an appreciation of the beauty that surrounds us”.
