This image is from an ongoing series that, in large part, investigates how our past experiences shape and dictate our present selves and relationships. I have struggled in romantic relationships my entire life, as I grew up with inadequate models for healthy, romantic relationships. In the past, I had the tendency to drift along with my partner’s priorities. I did not know how to self-prioritize me and what I wanted from my life. This image is a bit about that struggle.

Teresa is an award-winning Seattle-based multimedia artist that creates surrealist limited-edition fine art prints. Her work is photography-based, however, Teresa designs and fabricates her sets by hand. She then photographs her staged scenes and composites the final images digitally. Her large-format narrative works of fiction transport her viewers to whimsical lands and her use of vibrant, luscious colors result in eye-catching and wonder-filled imagery.
