Teresa Magel's work are not only definitions of what Femininity is but also a dialogue of what internal femininity looks like.  The aesthetic beauty is visible because of how Teresa chooses to see the world. True feminine beauty is visible only because it is a reflection of all aspects of what she believes the essence of being female is. " It is being beautiful outwardly because your soul is truly beautiful.  It is displaying strength and persevering amidst vulnerability.  It is defining and loving yourself un-apologetically. Its loving yourself unconditionally so that you may be love to others,  Beauty."
   Teresa's figures are often identifiable by their large coiffures of hair and their dreamlike eyes, lending them a sense of serenity and ardor.  Teresa will also integrate elements of nature to elicit a feeling of passion and showing grace, such as butterflies, bees, dragonflies and hummingbirds.
