Teresa graduated in Fine Art from the University of Falmouth, and her studio perches above the waves in South East Cornwall. A special quality of light reflects off the sea there, nourishing her glowing paintings that emit colour energy.
The fluidity of oil dictates her finished form in this process-based work; she uses gestural movement and impasto within a palimpsest, in which hidden depths of paint remain as vital as surface. The narrative of the work’s creation is structured into vibrant translucent layers.

“The paintings on my site are a selection since 2002, so you will notice a stylistic progression. You can see my work in galleries in the West Country, and further afield. Current exhibitions are on my News page.
Teresa WicksteedAs you can see from buyers’ endorsements on each page, the paintings evoke a wide range of interpretation. To discuss or commission a painting, please contact me by e-mail: I would be delighted to hear from you.”
