Original Oil on Canvas
Ms. Dong's passion for art was initially influenced by her father. From the age of five, he taught her both calligraphy and traditional Chinese art. In 1980, the US Consul General in Shanghai was so impressed with her Chinese paintings, that he granted her a visa to study western art in the United States.
Living in California provided her with a rich landscape for her oil paintings, which invites the observer to see a subject portrayed forever at a particular moment in time. Teresa's use of color is sensitice, and her interpretation of life's details and nature is evocative. Her work resides in collections all over the world.
She studied at the Hong Kong University & The Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
