This month I have chosen a very different type of artist. Her name is Theresa Young. She seems to combine two different styles using realistic yet very contemporary, with vibrant colours and an ethereal feeling. I love the flow of her lines and the beautiful detail of the end results. In the samples I’ve chosen you will also see some black and white pieces that I love for their intricate lines and realistic faces. But enough about how I feel, here is a short bio of the artist.
Theresa Young started painted in oils at the age of eight and sold pastel and charcoal portraits from the age of fourteen. She later took private art lessons with two professional artists on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. These lessons resulted in her mature style which integrated both approaches into itself in different ways. Other artists that influenced Theresa are H.R. Giger, Salvador Dali and Gervasio Gallardo.
