Current Works
by Teresa Magel

Teresa's work includes multiple elements which she uses to create paintings that represent a quiet calm of femininity. Her figures are often identifiable by their large coiffures of hair and by their dreamlike closed eyes, factors which lend them a sense of serenity. The elements of nature that she often includes in her work are flowers, butterflies, bees, dragonflies and especially hummingbirds- employed for their delicate fragility. Accompanying the visual aspects of her work are infusions of emotion, of feelings, and passionate sentiment which is the ultra effeminate essence of a woman.

"Love remains an immortal beloved, the passion to create, the desire to purge the soul. To place your heart in your hand and allow others to pet it like a velvet bird." We hope you can see the love mixed with the paint and the pulse that is palpable in the canvas, as this sojourn was enlightening and creating it created me…. "So with my heart as light as a hummingbird, red lipstick on my smile, a blond flame with blood that races to show beauty I’m honored to share my new work with you.
