Teresa Cook is an artist from and creating in Jacksonville, Florida. Cook started her love of art solely from drawing with color pencils. What started as colored pencil drawings grew into painting using mainly watercolor paints. She recounts using how-to books in the beginning of her painting journey and keeps them as a reminder of how far she has come in her craft. Today, Cook has developed her own style using watercolors to capture the world around her. She finds that traveling helps to fuel her work by inspiring new landscapes, textures, and skyscapes.
Jazz & R&B are Cook's favorite types of music to listen to put her in her art zone and looking at her work has that same cozy yet vibrant feeling. Much like music, Cook uses many layers and instead of overpowering each other, they are all left exposed to excite the eye. Following the wise words that her '"talent is a gift that is developing" she has nurtured her gift through a dedication to learn more and to be true to her self. She is an open book through fine art displaying some of her favorite places and sharing her personal experiences.
Cook regularly displays at Riverside Arts Market every Saturday with upcoming events on October 19 and 26 . Cook will also be participating in this year's San Marco Arts Festival November 30 - December 1, 2019 and has her sight set on Miami Art Basel this winter .
