Born in Southeastern Michigan, Teri takes her inspiration from the lakes and landscapes of her home state and from quilt makers, both in her family and beyond.

Teri often uses a minimalist approach in her paintings, depicting images at their most basic expressions of shape, color, and texture.  The visual tension of rocky lake beds against sandy shores, man-made structures, and bright colored flowers figure prominently in her work.

Her paintings have been exhibited in the Indiana State Museum and collected nationally.  They reside in the permanent collections of Eli Lilly, Franklin College, Wellpoint, Rush Shelby Energy, NPCA, and Community Hospital, and others.  In 2007, she was chosen to be one of the featured artists for the Arts Council of Indianapolis’ BeIndypendent campaign kick-off and, in 2008, she was juried into the Indiana Artisan Program.
