Theresa Westerlund, Paintings, Portraiture, and Pottery
I began drawing and painting as a youth, and continued developing my skills through formal education and self-study while traveling the globe. I find inspiration while actively taking part in all the world has to offer. I moved to Alaska seeking adventure and found that and more; amazing sunsets, beautiful scenery, and up-close and personal interaction with incredible creatures year round. My subjects include: Spotted animals, horses, water, glaciers, mountains, flowers and sunsets. Mediums include: Oil, acrylic, watercolor, artist markers, pencil, in addition to pottery, and jewelry.
My ultimate goal is to interpret nature and wildlife using vibrant and contrasting colors. I like to depict areas of light and dark using exaggerated lines and color. I enjoy spending time detailing my subjects as there are so many colors that are not seen at a first glance.
Over the years I have spent a lot of time dabbling in different mediums. This website is intended to display the works that I have created and serve as a journal for my creative purposes. If there is something that you are interested in purchasing (prints, pottery, or originals) please contact me! I would be happy and honored to share my work with you. Additionally, I would love to read your comments or suggestions. Leave me a message or share your thoughts.
