Artist Statement

My work is about color, nature, joy and discovery. I draw inspiration from the natural world using plants, birds and insects in my imagery. I have been gardening organically for the past 30 years, which not only feeds our family but I also use the garden along with our chickens and beehives as subject matter for my work.

Since becoming a beekeeper in 2008, I have been trying to use materials that would lessen the impact on the environment and reduce toxicity in my studio. I started using the beeswax from our hives in combination with various types of pigments to make encaustic paintings on wooden panels and prints on rice paper.  I continue to explore water-based painting media including water soluble oils and other eco-friendly art materials.

Theresa received her MFA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 1986 and has shown in Colorado and in many cities, both nationally and internationally and is currently teaching encaustic workshops in her studio in Boulder, CO.
