Theresa Somerset is a graduate of Castleton State College with a B.A. in Fine Arts. She has been employed by Boutilier’s Art Store, Collectors Art Gallery and Doll House Shop, and to date, at Artists’ Mediums Art Supply Store.
Theresa has an interest in painting in watercolors, acrylics, oils, and most recently, mixed media. Her favorite subjects are her children set in genre paintings, as well as still-lives which incorporate antique and sentimental objects from the artist’s own collections. She has won a number of awards, as well as participating in a number of juried shows. She has been drawing and painting since early childhood. Being a busy mother of two, she regiments herself to paint a certain number of hours per week.
Although not limited to, watercolor is the medium of choice for this artist. The paintings are slowly built up in a series of multiple glazes, which make for their brilliant and jewel-like qualities, much like traditional oils. This artist is also known to experiment with watercolor mediums – additives that give greater flexibility and interest to each piece.
