BA(Hons) Painting Drawing & Printmaking
Based in her studio overlooking the North Cornwall coast, Cornish native Teresa Stabb is a multi-disciplinary visual artist whose work occupies the nexus of art, design and craft. With a background in ceramics and drawing, her practice encompasses both two and three-dimensional pieces.
A life-long appreciation of nature and an awareness of the beauty and fragility of the environment provides the themes for Teresa's work and inspires her unique palette of hand-made inks, paints and pastels which she sources from plants, rocks and soil from her locale. The consistent material of choice in her practice is casein, a milk protein which incorporated with other ingredients forms the basis of gesso, size and fixative. Underpinning this profoundly materials-led practice is on-going historical research coupled with a strong sense of place and a passion for biomorphic form.
