“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.” - Alberto Giacometti
"I am inspired by nature, wildlife & the immense beauty that surrounds us on this planet. When I paint these amazing animals, I seek to portray them on a deeper level.... one that expresses the thunderous & powerful -yet also noble, peaceful & timeless- energy that they exude. My world is a colorful one, because that is the way I choose to view the world." - Teshia
Live Life Colorfully!
Teshia is turning the heads of art collectors near and far with her distinctive style of Contemporary Wildlife Artwork. At a young age, she has quickly made her mark in the art world. Her renowned colorful paintings are in high demand both nationally and internationally, and can be found in the homes of art collectors and aficionados from Montana to Milan.
Teshia specializes in large acrylic paintings that portray her unique interpretation of the exclusive animals and scenes of the West. She resides in Montana, where her inspiration is ignited by her passion for the great outdoors and the beautiful wildlife that flourishes around her. She prefers to let her heart and intuition guide her creativity, often having visions of her best pieces before conceptualizing them and bringing them into reality. She is primarily self-taught and sold her first painting at the age of 10.
Teshia's wildly colorful paintings embody a unique and remarkable combination of Abstract Art, Pop Art and Realism. Her Original pieces are often lavishly embellished with rich and lustrous metallic accents. They are acclaimed for "glowing" with astounding vibrancy, energy and life, and are displayed in Galleries throughout the West.
Much like her own outlook on life, Teshia’s paintings undeniably radiate fearlessness, adventure and dynamism. She seeks to exemplify the brilliance of the Western World through her imaginative artwork, exclaiming, “I believe that everything becomes a bit more beautiful with a splash of wild color, and that it is the color in the world around us that intoxicates our senses, livens our spirits and evokes positivity in our lives”.
She is ecstatic to be living her dream of splashing color into the wild and beautiful world that surrounds us all.
