Artist Information for Teresa Shippy

I make art that comes out of memory, yet integrates realism and whimsy.  More than 30 years ago I began capturing everyday memories through the vehicles of our past.  I remember the classic automobiles, the trucks and trailers of my childhood and adolescence, including the ice cream truck, the VW bus, and vintage Airstream trailers.

My technique layers a variety of fabrics onto canvas cloth that is enhanced with heavy threadwork to build texture and provide definition.
