Teresa Brimo is a Fine Art Artist previously based in Sydney, Australia. She works in all mediums, specifically oil and pastel. Her subjects range from still life, landscape, figure and portraits drawing inspiration from the old masters and the impressionist painters. As well inspired and learns from many present day painters. She chooses her subjects from her environment, especially the landscapes in Australia and her still life subjects are works that have a personal meaning in her life. Teresa’s art journey began at a young age heavily influenced by her exposure to art in classes and museums in New York City. A love of dance led to a 15 year career as a professional ballet dancer in New York and the Northeast of America. She then resumed her art studies at The Art Students League of New York where she earned a merit scholarship. While raising 4 children, she put her study of art on hold but still honing her skills with the time alotted. Relocating to Australia and all its beauty further inspired her love of art. She began to study art seriously at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney taking life drawing and painting classes for a number of years studying with excellent teachers there, among them, Sally Ryan and Murray Bird. There she gained a Certificate in Fine Art and began exhibiting in the annual student and teacher’s exhibition. Her work has been exhibited in the Royal Easter Show 2015,2017,2018, and 2021, and the Randwick Women’s Art Prize. A move to Launceston, Tasmania for two years gave Teresa time to further hone in her talents. She studied with Leoni Duff and joined the Launceston Art society and the West Tamar Arts Group where she exhibited her works in a solo exhibition in 2020. She returned to Sydney where she continued studying and exhibiting her work. She is presently a member of the Lane Cove Art Society. Teresa believes that the study of art is a lifelong endeavour and she wishes to convey the beauty of everyday life through her paintings. You can view her works on her website. Teresa has recently relocated to Melbourne where she is a member of the Pastel Society of Victoria and exhibits her work with them as well as other venues there.
