As an artist, Teri looks for inspiration in people and nature. While her earlier work focused on landscapes and portraits, she has now turned more to abstraction. Her eye is drawn to natural forms, including what she calls the “litter” or waste products of nature. In peeling bark and piles of dried leaves — what most people ignore or sweep away — she finds lasting beauty. Environmental topics, such as pollution and deforestation, are also important to her artistic vision.
In recent years, she has been developing her own methods of shaping 3D quilts. Each new work is a different challenge, depending on its size, shape, and integration of elements. As she strives to determine how far she can stretch the boundaries of fabric, she also stretches the public’s perception of quilting.
