Artist Statement by Teresa Bernard

Artist StatementMy Artist Statement

The love I have for quality fine art and my artistic ability are gifts from the one true God. It is because of Him that I’m able to share my gifts with the world.

I’m told every professional artist needs an artist statement; this is mine.

Fine art has been my passion since I was young. I love working on my paintings, and I am often inspired by life and nature. I love many art styles, but realism is my favorite. As a realism artist, my approach to a subject is to portray it as it appears in life, just as God created it. However, I do admire other art styles, such as impressionism and abstract art. For example, Vincent Van Gogh and Picasso are among my favorite artists whose artistic styles reflect those styles. Others who are also my favorite include American artists Georgia O’Keeffe for her flower paintings and Thomas Kinkaid for his realism in art.

I love the challenge of painting a variety of subjects (landscapes, seascapes, still life, etc.), whatever inspires me at the moment. This accounts for the various categories of paintings found on this website. However, I think my favorite would have to be landscape since I do more than any other genre.

Oil paint is the medium I use to create my art on canvas. Painting in oils is a traditional form of art that many of the Old Masters used when they made their masterpieces. I love the work of the Old Masters, and someday I hope to be as much of an accomplished artist as they were.

I love sharing my paintings with others, so I’ve created this website to showcase a selection of my most recent oil paintings. As I finish more paintings, I will add them to my site. So take a look around and if you find something you like, feel free to post your comments or drop me an email. Be sure to check back periodically to see what’s new. Thank you for visiting my online art studio. It’s been a delight to share my paintings with you.
