Teresa Freedom is a self-styled artist with a life-long interest in fine art. Originally from Massachusetts, she has traveled the country extensively gathering inspiration and experience. Her journey has included years of work in the graphics/printing trade. Teresa employs this background within her art as evidenced by clean lines and balanced design. Yet she stretches the classic “hard line” graphics to a more fluid interpretation. Though often simple in content, her works reflect “in bold sweeping strokes and vibrant color” an emotional view of her world, fixed permanently in oil on canvas.

Teresa has embraced this diverse life of a wanderer in an ongoing desire to attain artistic understanding. She has found her muse in the imaginings of the universe - hidden in the subtleties of a Maui rainforest, demonstrated in the terrain of a petal and residing within the towering human diversions of urban sprawl. Her stylized renderings remain an evolving kaleidoscope of color and concept. “My objective is to invite discourse by interpreting the twists of human emotion within unflinching color and familiar content. Sometimes, it is sufficient to simply tweak the imagination at the whim of the canvas ...”

Recent projects include her continued work in oils and watercolors and an on-going learning curve in animation. “There is art everywhere - my job is to define and present an image - knowing full well that image is open to the viewer’s interpretation. I welcome and encourage this participation. It’s the excitement, the frustration and the fulfillment of creating art.”

Teresa’s works have been collected by discriminating buyers throughout the world. Prints have been purchased as far away as Italy, Sweden and Germany. Her originals reside in homes from Maine to Maui. One of her more fun pieces, a 12’ x 3’ mural with surfboard menus, enlivens the atmosphere of Lappert’s in Kihei, HI. She has been privileged to be a part of the Iao Valley signage in Wailuku, Hi and the Sabado Murals of Maui and Molokai, HI.

Ms Freedom has been exhibited in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Stamford, Portland (Maine and Washington) Wailuku, Lahaina and Paia on Maui. Her published works include a book of art and poetry, “Shadows Mask Only Our Fears”; a children’s story, “The Mouse Who Wanted to Fly”; and a limited edition print series entitled, “Introspection”.
