As a native of Los Angeles, I grew up having a love affair with the ever-present automobile. Cruising its streets, I captured images that reflect my idyllic vision of a long lost, but not forgotten, Los Angeles.
Older cars are like rolling sculptures to me. They were created with so many interesting details, each big Auto company had product lines of very distinct designs. They painted the cars wonderful bright colors
I was interested in cars when I was a kid! The first car I remember was my Mom’s 1954 Coral Color Chevy Convertible when I was around 8 years old. My adorable first car when I was age 16 in 1962 was a 1954 turquoise & white Nash Metropolitan….bought it for $350.00!
Cars have their own personalities! They evoke romantic memories of our whole lifetimes! They are symbols of freedom! The first time one gets to drive off on their own is a momentous life event!
Intensifying the colors creates a magical world that reflects my lifetime of memorable Joy Rides in Los Angeles!
Fall Brings us a multitude of colors and shapes that create wondrous patterns of movement and color. As a free promotional activity, Exhibitions Without Walls decided to focus on Fall, a season of colors, shapes, and movement to help uplift the moods during these trying times.

I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes, and colors.
DREAM Scapes – My art speaks to a wonderful place where the aesthetic joy of color enriches my world.
The “Joy Rides” are symbols of the freedom that made Los Angeles such a special place to grow up in 50 years ago. Intensifying the colors creates an unreal world that reflects a loss, but not forgotten Los Angeles.

Sometimes, but thankfully not often, the challenge is staying inspired to continually create new artworks. Unlike drawing or painting by hand, a digital artist must rely on finding one photo or sometimes many photo components to fulfill the image in their mind’s eye. When these components are elusive, the creative pool can become dry. When one idea is not coming to fruition, then I know that I must mentally and emotionally shift gears and devise a new concept for my next piece.

Leading lines are maybe the common element throughout my whole portfolio. It is very important for me to have a composition where the eyes will be drive naturally towards the main subject. Having super-light or any moody weather conditions will not make a good image whether the composition is not perfectly balanced…. And for me, good composition is a matter of leading lines.

EWW: What do you think that people notice and comment on the most, when viewing your work?
Teri: The lighting in my photographs is usually what catches the attention of the viewer, along with the scene in Nature. I am a big fan of allowing the elements of the focal point to set the tone. There is no way to rush Mother Earth, so it is a lesson in watching the dynamics unfold. Art is about communicating with another’s heart. And that is what my focus is in each image. At some level, it is my intent to help the viewer find their own inner peace and help bring a remembrance of who they are.
I work to express the essential meaning or feeling of my subject. Seeing the shape of things, the figure in the carpet, making sure that the viewer gets it too.
