“My love of light and color, as well as studies in nature and architecture, inspire me to paint from the heart. I find that there is a painting around every corner. Looking for the unexpected gives a new perspective and freshness to my work. Each one is truly unique and I never cease to learn from each painting. Presently an oil painter, my goal is to pursue the use of other media to better express myself artistically.” Having lived in South Carolina most of her life, Teresa Jones is extremely familiar with the subtle beauties of this region. Her passion for capturing a glimpse of such beauty is what makes her paintings truly southern and uniquly realistic. From coast to countryside to the mountains, Teresa offers the viewer a private window to the landscapes and scenery familiar to both South Carolina residents and visitors alike. Although she has had a life long dream to paint, she only began her career in 2004 after moving to Charleston. Throughout the years, while raising three children, Teresa studied variuos media and has selected oil as her medium of choice. She has studied with many local and nationally known artists, in formal classes, as well as workshops.
Teresa is an active member of The Charleston Artist Guild and participates in many of their annual shows and exhibits. Her original work, as well as commissioned work is in private collections across the nation. She is also represented by The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery at 160 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC as well as her studio in Charleston.
