“I have known about the Good Design Principles lessons by artist Teresa Bernard for several years, and I am continually impressed. Recently I have shared several of them with my graphic design students.” — Dr. Richard D. Sheridan, Assistant Professor Wilberforce University, Ohio.

“Good afternoon! My name is Maria Kline and I’m the proud visual arts teacher at Ninos Heroes Elementary in Chicago. During March (Women’s History Month) my 1st and 2nd grade students were learning about different women artists, and I stumbled across you during research. My students used your lovely work to compare and contrast landscapes and created mountain river scenes by combining their favorite elements. They got so into it that we spent weeks on making different landscapes. I just wanted to send you a little thank you for the inspiration, the kids loved your artwork! Best wishes, — Maria Kline, Visual Arts Teacher Ninos Heroes Elementary, Chicago, IL

“Hi Teresa, I am writing all the way from Cape Town, South Africa. I just love your site; thank you for all you make available. Being an artist myself (not professional), I found the information extremely valuable and what a joy to look at your artwork. There are many, many questions I wish I could ask you (over many cups of coffee!), but I was wondering if you have a newsletter? I am not on Facebook or any other social network, but if that is the only other way to be exposed to your work, I will try my best to learn that skill. Once again, thank you for what you are willing to share.” — Adele, Cape Town, South Africa

It reminds me of Finding Nemo.” — Tylee K.

I especially love your painting of Heceta Head Lighthouse as I live just 15 min. down the road from there. You have captured it beautifully. I have put it in as one of my screen savers, so I can see it every day. Thank you for blessing the world with your gift.” — Mae P., Florence OR

“I just visited your website for the first time today. You have created some very lovely paintings.

I appreciate all of the information that you’ve so freely given on your website. I have your site marked as one of my favorites and will be visiting often. Thanks a bunch! Best wishes for a successful future!” — Marty M., Kentucky

“Teresa: my name is Bob May. I am a published poet and am working on a lengthy paper about the nature of poetry. In one section of this paper, I am considering poetry in relation to fine art painting – at which point I wanted to insert a good definition of “fine art” – not so much because I don’t think most readers would understand the term, but more because I want them to know exactly how I’m using it so they will understand the context completely. So, yes, I searched through a dozen resources I use on a regular basis (including the 4 dictionaries I keep open on my desktop all the time – then, when I entered the term into my search engine the second link was to your website, where I found the best definition of them all. Sorry for the lengthy over-explanation, but I would like to use your definition and credit your site along with the name of the author. Thanks for considering the idea.” — Robert (RA) May, Berkeley CA

Sea of Galilee at Capernaum (2005)

“I really like your paintings–the portrait of your husband is very unusual in composition and the backlighting–wish I could see it in real life.
