Larry McMurtry's ground breaking novel The Last Picture
Show accurately represents the cultural background of
Teresa Elliott's birthplace in Weatherford, Texas. Her
deepest connections start there and always seem to end in
the same place. Whatever she is painting, the roots of it
connect to the same tree.
Teresa received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Design
from the University of Kansas. In 1976 she was
recommended by the Dean of Fine Arts to help the local
police department locate a serial rapist in Lawrence,
Kansas. There, she worked as a forensic sketch artist
listening to verbal descriptions to help apprehend the
suspect in Nebraska. Working from life right out of high
school prepared her for the assignment. Before entering
college she sketched pastel portraits from life everyday in
front of an outdoor audience for several months 6 days a
week in St. Louis, Missouri. Working alongside other more
seasoned artists was an invaluable experience and during
that intense period her draftsmanship rapidly improved.
During college her fine art photography and design courses
contributed to her skill set.
After college, the road to becoming an oil painter was a
circuitous one beginning at several significant advertising
agencies in Dallas. Shortly thereafter she entered into a
successful freelance career as an illustrator and graphic
designer producing work for major national retailers. The
majority of her work was rendered in black and white and all
the values in between, but, it wasn't until much later that
color was incorporated into her images. During this period
she honed her design and illustrative skills, meeting
hundreds of print deadlines and supporting herself for 26
Primarily self taught, Elliott is perhaps best known for her
extensive group of Texas longhorn oil paintings which are
included in corporate and private collections across the
United States, Canada and Australia. She has been
selected to exhibit in many invitational museums shows
nationwide winning awards in Colorado, Texas and Arizona.
Her work is represented in galleries in Fredericksburg, TX,
Santa Fe, NM and Jackson Hole, WY where she has had
several individual and group shows.
Teresa lives and paints in Alpine,Texas, north of the Big
Bend National Park.
