Teresa Dobbs About
I grew up in Florida and have been painting and drawing for over 30 years. My parents, seeing I had talent at a young age, supported me by hired art tutors and enrolled me in art classes from a young age. I remember as a young child, still in elemetary school, working with an art tutor while sitting under a big oak tree. I took art throughout school and was introduced to oil painting in my teens by a neighbor who saw my drawings and encouraged me to paint. I studied under her for some time and again my parents enrolled me into painting classes to encourage and support my painting. Through the years I have traveled around a bit and I have taken many pictures of subjects I wanted to paint some day. I have taken a number of art classes throughout the years, but have my own style of painting that is always evolving and am mostly self taught. I paint what makes me happy and I enjoy nature and wildlife. I look for subjects that inspire me to paint and that shows the beauty and colors of nature.
