ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
My name is Teresa Small and I am an emerging artist, based in Sydney, Australia. Working primarily (but not limited) with oils, my expertise is in painting. My perception of the beautiful world around me changed completely when I was introduced to painting. I fell in love with the world in a whole new way. I first picked up the paint brush when I was thirteen and it was love at first stroke. Painting now for over 10 years, I enjoy creating exceptionally high-quality art works that ranges from photo-realistic portraits, sublime landscapes to bold, vibrant and surreal contemporary styles. I exhibit my work in multiple art shows and local cafes, as well as running market stalls around the eastern suburbs and inner west of Sydney. I have proven to be exceedingly popular with clients for my commissioned works.
Painting has been such a pure source of joy to me and sharing that joy has been my mission for the last two years. Running classing in watercolour, acrylics and oils weekly in traditional techniques in realism shares my knowledge of classical art making. Alongside my classes I run a series of creative, dynamic and social workshops in cutting edge mediums and techniques with a groovy twist.
The creative freedom of the fluid style painting has seduced me with its wild, free flowing properties. This painting technique draws a direct parallel to the flow of life. There are aspects you can control such as the colours used, techniques applied, and variations added, just like in life you can control the decisions you choose. The final product however is always new and different, a beautiful surprise, like in life you never have complete control, yet the outcome always has beauty to it. Let me share this love of fluid art with you through the exciting workshops is high flow painting.
