I am excited to be the first artist to adorn the walls at the beautiful new Industrious Tempe workspace on Mill Avenue. If you are viewing my artwork in person at Industrious and would like to buy a painting, please make the purchase online by selecting the piece below and show your e-mailed receipt to the staff at Industrious. Yes, you may take the painting with you at the time of purchase!
P.S. - Here’s a link to shop ALL my available art (not just pieces at Industrious).
Safety and magic rarely intersect. I am often cautioned against hiking alone, but I never lack company when in the presence of saguaros, hoodoos, mountains, trees, and bees. The moments I spend by myself in nature are as important as the paint I use to coat my brushes, filling me with beauty, inspiration, wonder, and peace. Back in the studio, photographs never quite capture the enchantment or grandeur of my experience. My personal challenge as an artist is to create scenes that convey my perception of the world and transport the viewer to that magnificent moment made permanent.
About the Artist
Teressa Lynn Jackson was born in Enid, Oklahoma, and grew up in the Louisville, Kentucky, suburb of New Albany, Indiana. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Louisville’s Bellarmine University in 1998. Following graduation, Teressa spent a summer studying Byzantine mosaics and frescoes in Italy with the State University of New York. Prior to returning to her creative roots, Teressa enjoyed a fulfilling 15-year career in the Louisville-area not-for-profit sector.
In fall 2016, Teressa sold her home and most of her possessions and spent a year traveling, connecting with beautiful places and experiences and using those adventures to inform and relaunch her lifelong need to create. In late 2017, Teressa and her husband made their new home in the Sonoran Desert. Ms. Jackson’s work has been shown in a number of juried and non-juried art exhibitions over the past twenty-five years, and she has been the recipient of several awards for her artwork.
