Teresa Young - Premium Artist

I am a Canadian artist that only recently made a career switch from computers to pursuing art as my focus. I still work in computers as a day job, but focus on showing my art around the world. Some of my recent exhibitions have been in Paris, Italy, London (England), New York and I will be one of many artists exhibiting in the Florence Biennale in December 2011.

My style spans a range of surrealism and abstraction because sometimes, emotions are more powerfully expressed with a central subject that can act as a focal point that the audience can directly identify with. This means that I'll sometimes use human faces or eyes for clarity and emotional impact. Other pieces will be wholly abstracted, as they are more 'emotional landscapes' meant to be interpreted by the viewer in a more subjective fashion. What do I hope to achieve? I'd like to leave a legacy of my life through my artwork. I'd like to have others enjoy it and get something real out of it, some sort of connection to the beauty of art and how it enriches humanity on a daily basis.
