Artist Statement:
Teresa Smith’s oil paintings are about ecology with nature as icon.  Informed by spiritual practice and a naturalist philosophy, her art combines a richness of oil pain as visceral material with contemplative practice.

The work is about the mystery beneath the surface, the layer woven between worlds.  The romance and richness of beauty, earth, salt air, wild roses, cedar and tide.
