Mission Statement: to reflect the love and joy found in the Creator's creations - especially animals - and to move people to experience it at a deeper level
Within us are attributes of the divine “being” (translated from the Hebrew, Yahweh). These include the remarkable capacity to create and to love — gifts not merely to be treasured, but to be shared. For this reason Teena creates. “I could no sooner turn off this ability than a spring could stop bubbling up through the ground. It is what I am designed to do.”
Much of Teena’s current 2-d work focuses on animals (who provide insight into God’s kingdom). Many of us are inhibited when it comes to relating to people. However, with animals we freely love while delighting in the joy, innocence, and child-like love they give back. In essence, they teach us to practice grace and love and to give it back.
In addition to 2-D art Teena also works with glass and occasionally ceramics. You'll find her artisan gifts linked on her gifts page.
New areas of focus include commisioned art, especially pet portraits and licensed art.
Style and Medium:
Currently her 2-D artwork is primarily acrylics and ink, with occasional mixed media.
Depending on the theme of her art, subject matter and color range from sepia tones with a vintage feel to bright colors with a child-like playfulness.
History and Education: Born in Winston-Salem, NC, Teena has lived all over the U. S. She has come full circle back to her North Carolina roots and now resides in Hickory, NC. Her many identities include: mother, published author, pastor’s wife and artist. She holds a BA from Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA and is a graphic design major with a concentration in writing. In 2015 she made a career change to pursue art full time and is transitioning from a focus on handmade gifts to visual arts.
Accomplishments: Selling her jewelry to celebrities. Designing Safe Harbor Rescue Mission’s annual Christmas ornament. Member of Uni4artists. Recipient of the Regional Artist Grant (2016) and running her own online handmade stores. For more information about her and her unique creations, visit http://www.serendipitinistudio.com
