This bridging of the spiritual and the fusion of color and movement, eternally changing and yet captured fleetingly, have characterized Teresa Dunwell's paintings for the past 25 years. Celebration of the feminine, transformation, and rebirth are all explored as well as the nature of the divine harmony and language of light. This is an infusion of energy which manifests into a Universal luminous connection.
There is a connection and it is felt with the brush….
There is a connection and it is felt with the soul….
There is a longing and it is felt with the heart……
A painting is born.
I take particular delight in painting life from an unseen but often felt perspective. I wish to take the viewer into recognition of energetic connections between the animate and the inanimate boundaries of form as these are not static and invite interaction. These transmitted connections are felt through meditation and contemplation allowing me to continue to discover and pursue a painting language to express the unseen. This is a process of surrendering, listening, getting out of the way and then conveying what is felt through color form and movement.

They say art is in "the eye of the beholder". I hope to engage the viewer to feel between the veils of what they see in the glazed oil and wholeheartedly dive into the fullness of joy recognizing the majesty of who they are. The inner whispers of these paintings are but faint understandings of this multi-dimensional universe of connection at play.

Teresa Dunwell paints from a place of deep, integrated wisdom and compassion. Her connection to Spirit and love is evident in her work as an artist and visionary. —Deborah KeysTeresa Dunwell’s paintings are images of living, spiritual, archetypal energies that transmit grace, wholeness, and healing. The paintings invoke a sacred bodily response from the viewer, in which the heart and mind blend the visual image into a mandala of forgiveness, acceptance, and joy. It is as if soul speaks to soul, and the Spirit dances in response. —Bishop Althira RomasI have one of Teresa’s paintings in my private sanctuary. It hangs just to the right of my altar. It is a joy to behold. Dimensional aspects of my soul seem to spring forth in greater wholeness and self-acceptance and my whole being comes into the center of peace and repose. - Bishop Althira Romas
