About

My artistic process...

Teresa is an artist and creative currently living in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. She is a wife and mother to two children and a dog named Lucy. Teresa has always had a love for art and dabbled over the years until she set out to take watercolor classes at the Dupage Art League in Wheaton, Il. While perfecting her watercolor technique she found her own style and began painting for family and friends who encouraged her to open a shop on Etsy.

Throughout her life and childhood, nature has been a respite and a huge source of inspiration for much of her current work. "Inspiration is everywhere if you can open yourself up to it." While browsing small shops in her town, Teresa came across a cute hanging wire mobile. "it was one of those pieces that I didn't quite know what I was going to do with it, but I had to have it." " I wanted to incorporate my watercolors into the piece and decided to create vibrant abstract mini paintings that could be clipped onto the mobile." " My first piece had a real bohemian vibe and has been well received."
Teresa also creates unique origami wall hangings. “I needed a break from painting and began playing with origami to keep the creative juices flowing. I was drawn to the beautiful papers and the delicate sculpture of origami and played around with the idea of creating a piece that could incorporate my love of birch wood as well. The result was my origami bird wall hangings. I brought them to an art show and they are now my most popular pieces! I have created several custom wall hangings for my clients. They look great in any room.”
When she isn't painting and creating, Teresa is taking care of her family, cheering her kids on in soccer, baseball and tennis and volunteering at their school. She also loves to travel and loves girls nights with margaritas and gin cocktails. "London mules are pretty great too!"

In addition to Etsy, Teresa is a member of the Dupage Art League in Wheaton, IL and can also be found at a variety of art fairs and markets including Fetching Market in northwest Indiana. Keep in touch for updates.
