Teresa Dong

San Rafael , CA

I love to paint. Painting is my life. I was certain that I wanted to be an artist whilst in kindergarten. Through life's ups and downs, even during the Chinese Cultural revolution I never lost sight of the goal in my heart. Today, finally, my dream has come true. I will devote the rest of my life to be a better painter.

Teresa's passion for art was influenced by her father, Hong Zhang Dong. From the age of five he taught her both calligraphy and traditional Chinese art. She continued to study under Professor Zhong-Zhou Cheng from Tong Ji University in Shanghai.
In 1980, the Us Consul General in Shanghai was so impressed with one her Chinese paintings, that he granted her a visa to study western art in the United States.
Once in the US, in order to achieve financial independence, Teresa developed a revolutionary washable silk product for her first collection of women's apparel, under the label "Usagi".
Living in California provided her with a rich landscape for her plein-air paintings which invites the observer to se a subject portrayed forever at a particular moment in time. Teresa's use of color in her work is sensitive, and her interpretation of life's details and nature is evocative.
Teresa studied at the University of Hong Kong, The Academy of Art University, San Francisco, also with [professor Boris Kokhno from the St Petersburg Art Academy. She is a member of California Art Club and Oil Painters of America.
