Stone Cup Show Statement 

On a recent trip to Ethiopia, our family toured the northern region of Amhara – a cradle of civilization. Across bumpy, dusty roads we drove miles into the back country taking in the beautiful terraced farmlands, mountains and Ethiopians walking with herds along the roadside to arrive at Simien Mountains National Park on top of the world. This encaustic series is the result of the watercolor sketches and drawings made during that trip and are the tangible memories of times shared with family and friends as well as new friendships forged on the journey. Click on the STONE CUP tab to see images of the work in the gallery.

Artist Statement

Nature inspires and awakens in me a connection to God and His creation. I love to paint and sketch while traveling. I’ve learned that art is an international language bringing huge smiles and goodwill between cultures.  I believe that kinship with the earth and it’s people heals.

Since becoming a beekeeper in 2006, I have been trying to use materials that would lessen the impact on the environment and reduce toxicity in my studio.   I continue to explore encaustics and water-based painting media including water soluble oils and other eco-friendly art materials.

I hold my paintings loosely as they evoke memories, translation and transcendence with the emergence of a narrative that speaks to my heart and spirit. The beauty of land, people, culture, experiences, life and seasons of joy are threads that continue to bind my work.

Theresa received her MFA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas in 1986. She lives with her family in Boulder, CO where she paints and teaches encaustic workshops. She exhibits in Colorado as well as in other galleries both nationally and internationally.
