Biography

Teresa Elliott has lived in her native Texas for most of her life and now lives and paints in Alpine, Texas, north of Big Bend National Park near the Mexican border. She remembers a childhood “soulful connection” to animals that continues to this. day. Entering a pasture full of bovines has never been a stretch for Teresa. As a child, her grandfather’s farm in Texas offered her the opportunity to observe cattle chewing their cuds while time slowed to a natural rhythm. Teresa reflects, “It became a place and time to know my subjects in their entirety. Details were etched in my memory; the texture of their dusty fur, glistening noses, large massive forms and the way I felt in their presence.” All of those memories were reawakened when Elliott turned her attention to painting the Texas Longhorn in 2005. The horns of the beast were new shapes full of exquisite new details to relish; their endless patterns and color combinations make oil painting a fascinating subject.

Elliott has exhibited every year in many prestigious galleries since 2006 from coast to coast in the US and has been included in many museum shows, most notably the Beijing World Art Museum in Beijing, China, the Butler Institute Of Art, Youngstown, Ohio, the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain and Salmagundi Club in New York City. She is represented by RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York and InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas. Her figurative work introduced an entirely new narrative gaining awards from The Art Renewal Center and The Artists Magazine Annual competition in the figurative category winning third place in 2014.
