About Trina Teele
I recognize a tendency in my artwork towards representational subject matter that is figurative as opposed to landscape in its simplicity. I look for strong, graphic, darks and lights. I love emphasizing rhythmic shapes of bold color and I typically paint to music as it helps me to focus in on what I am doing. The ideal subject makes me feel like it is swaying and thus rouses me to paint. Recently, I’ve taken to doing an under painting with a thin acrylic wash on canvas, and layering it with a more loosely styled oil paint. This permits me the control and speed of acrylic with the depth and blending of oil.
Growing up in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, Trina spent summers in Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Long Island, NY. The rhythm of the ocean has been a central theme in her life.
While in college Trina became aware of a duality in art. There was the powerful calculated art of the commercial world, and the unique and unexpected expressiveness of personal art. She embraced this duality and got a degree in both Graphic Design and Painting with a concentration in Art History from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
After graduation, Trina entered into the corporate world as a graphic designer. Ever present in the back of her mind, was the warning from a college art professor. “Within five years, many of you will never pick up a paint brush again.” She did not want to prove him right and kept painting.
In several years, she had two daughters. She reduced her hours to part time so she could better manage the new role of being a mother. At this time, she explored watercolor for the first time, finding it less messy than canvas painting with little children about. By the time her daughters were in middle and high school, Trina left the corporate world and opened her own freelance graphic design business. In her personal artwork she returned to using acrylic paints and found it surprisingly manageable after the brief period with watercolors.
Trina explores the question of why one needs art and creativity. This has led her to a daily commitment towards creativity as evidenced on her blog (trinacreative.blogspot.com). She also maintains her graphic design business (www.teeledesign.com) and continues to study with local artists. She contributes to and participates routinely in local shows, exhibits, art societies, and art festivals.
