Teresa Currie

Eastbourne, East Sussex


I was born in Surrey and now live in the Sussex area. Initially I trained at Croydon Art College and went on to work as a Cartographer and Technical Illustrator before becoming a freelance artist and illustrator.
Currently, I work as a professional artist and tutor and my inspiration for my work is from dreams, landscape, architecture, literature, contemporary and ancient art and wildlife.
Over the course of the years my practice as an artist has covered a diverse range of subjects that have included portraiture, architectural studies, landscape, wildlife, fantasy and allegorical.
My choice of mediums include watercolour, acrylics, soft pastel, pen & ink, pen & wash, charcoal & graphite, inks, Brusho, photography, ceramics, printmaking (screenprints & lino-cuts) and more recently, relief painting involving sculpture.
As a tutor I am involved in continuous research and I believe this has a positive impact on my own work. Furthermore, I believe being diverse and keeping an open mind are essential to being a creative visual artist. Life is too short to limit your creative horizons.
As an artist I have over thirty years experience and have exhibited in London, Surrey and Sussex.
I have sold my work both nationally and abroad.
Presently, I teach and run three art groups and I also visit and demonstrate to art groups in the Sussex & Surrey area.
