ART BY JOAN TEED

Oils, Pastels, Acrylics

Let Her Sleep for When She Wakes She will Move Mountains

"My paintings begin with an idea and a few simple lines. While I paint I lose myself in a time warp. As the painting develops and evolves, it takes on a life of it’s own, a life in which only I know the secrets behind each passage, each color value, and each stroke. In the end reality suddenly becomes apparent and instinctively I know I must stop, I am left with something deeply personal, as if looking into a mirror; I see a reflection of me."

My entire life has revolved around art. I discovered it at the age of four, when I realized this is much more than just “staying inside the lines”. It was my major in high school and college, and a career, as a graphic and technical artist at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. My favorite mediums are oil, pastels and acrylics. My style is representational with a contemporary slant. My favorite subject matter depends on what moves me. Currently my passion is portraiture. When I paint a portrait of a person or an animal, I am painting much more than a picture, I paint the emotion, the mood and the life.

Enjoy the newest art and widest range of individual artist's original work providing the rare opportunity of seeing the artists in their studio environment and offering explanations and demonstrations of their materials and art process. This is also a unique time to purchase fine art directly from the artists.
