In 1996 Teresa Beyer studied commercial art and design in Los Angeles, California where she first found a gift and love for painting.
Later moving to Ventura, CA she pursued a successful career in desktop publishing and provided freelance graphic art services to Ventura’s Rubicon Theatre Company and the Channel Islands Ballet. During this time a voice in her head kept saying “Why don’t you go draw or paint something?” And so she did - in 1998.
Inspired by the beautiful coastal community and from deep seated emotions and her inner voice, she began studying art and fell in love with watercolor, where a devotion and concentration for this liquid color was solidified.
While living in Ventura Teresa entered several juried shows and won several awards for her work. Her work can be found in several public and private collections, including a collection of commissioned paintings permanently displayed at the Pierpont Inn. She was also the representing artist for the Historical Committee and sold prints and cards of her work at the Buenaventura Museum in Ventura, CA. She was an active member and recording secretary for the Buenaventura Art Association, and Renee Meyer, owner and curator of Accolades Gallery, invited Teresa to join her stable of artists.
Ms Beyer moved in the winter of December 2013 to Mountain View in the heart of the Silicon Valley. She has wasted no time in becoming an active member of the art society, entering several juried shows and placing second in a California Strawberry Festival. She also has memberships with the Los Altos Art Club, Society of Western Artists, American Women Artist, Los Gatos Art Association, California Watercolor Society and the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society. Her work has been displayed at the Pacific Art League, The Triton Community Gallery, The Society of Western Artists Fine Art Center, The Saratoga Library, Los Altos Hills Town Hall, Mistral Restaurant & Bar, in addition to her solo show at the Los Gatos Hills Presentation Center.
Teresa can be found at Art Bias in San Carlos, Studio #203 where she has a working studio and gallery. Ms Beyer looks forward to establishing herself in the art community as well as gaining local and national recognition.
Teresa is always keeping the brushes wet, continuing to explore new mediums, while most of her work is done in watercolor.
