Award winning artist Teri Rose paints what she knows and loves best – horses, dogs, and the wide open spaces of a country life. Generally using the laborious and time consuming method called glazing – layering oil pigment upon pigment with fine, meticulous strokes – she creates paintings and portraits with a vibrant image of great depth. Occasionally crossing over into impressionism, she uses that genre to showcase the movement of horses and the cowboys that ride them.
No matter the subject, her aim is always to capture its elemental aspects through a mix of old world realism and contemporary impressionistic techniques. She draws on the painterly techniques of Rembrandt and Raphael to bring a three dimensional quality to the two dimensional plane of the canvas.
Teri regularly shows her artwork throughout California, including at the SLO Cattlemen’s Western Art Show, and the Draft Horse Classic in Grass Valley, where she has won numerous awards for her work. Her work has been featured in The Arabian Horse World, Horse Illustrated, The County News, Telegram Tribune, Draft Horse Journal, and as a cover image for the SLO County Equestrian Guide and Inside International. Her art reflects the seasoned maturity that only close to forty years of productive expression can bring.
