Teresa Magel's artwork includes multiple elements which she uses to create paintings that represent a strong and quiet calm of femininity. Her figures are often identifiable by their large
coiffures of hair and by their dreamlike closed eyes, factors which lend them a sense of serenity. The elements of nature that she often includes in her work are flowers, butterflies, bees,
dragonflies and especially hummingbirds- employed for their delicate fragility. Accompanying the visual aspects of her work are infusions of emotion, of feelings, and passionate sentiment which
is the ultra effeminate essence of a woman.
Asked about her new work, Teresa had this to say. "I want this new work to reflect the wild within a person. That untamed part of the human spirit that we seek, find and adhere
to that makes up our lives.
I have no profound statement, I just want to share thoughts and the never answered questions that came up while creating these ladies." Enjoy the musings of a woman attempting to live her
You find your wild soul when:
You realize you must do the very things that scare you.
When you realize that love will never be guaranteed, do it anyway, be vulnerable and hold another's heart with extreme care.
You find that sacred scary place you have to be face to face with when you know the desire to live an authentic life is synonymous with being brave.
That you can't be the real you without honesty with your soul.
That you need to let go of what doesn't serve you and know that you will be ok.
And that you should live beautifully- even if you have to find out what that means to you.
Know that your wild is that howl you hear that sings you back to sleep.
Know that the untamed shall inherit the world,
and your wild will claw at you from the inside to remind you that you are the untamed too.
