Love of nature and creativity have gone hand in hand from childhood for Teri. Her family always had a garden and she always had a sketchbook! After 35 years as a Photo Editor, Teri has transitioned to Artist, taking full advantage of the lush growing environment of the Northeastern USA. Teri's passion for spirituality, nature and creativity has finally found the perfect outlet.
Leaf Art began with collecting brightly colored fall leaves while walking a country road in the 1990's. Laying them out on the kitchen table, a simple collage took shape and was titled Leaves In My Garden Grow. What began with a minimum of 10 images each fall has expanded to year round creating. Leaf Art awakens and strengthens appreciation and connection with nature by magnifying nature's beauty, infinite variety and detail. Playfulness is important too. Often subjects chosen and image titles express that aspect. These are "feel good" images, embedded with joy! Taking home Leaf Art is taking home JOY.
