Teresa Dirks
Weatherby Lake, Missouri

Teresa Dirk’s artistic voice is profoundly influenced by her upbringing in the rustic American south. Seamstresses, quilters, gardeners, and farmers, served as creative role models throughout her childhood that cultivated her love of nature, growth, and creativity. She works in mixed media to create abstracts that channel the energy of her past. Her paintings are deeply personal and carry precise meanings and particular stories to them. The whimsical lines and playful color choices lend themselves to a childlike quality that charms with nostalgia. Though each of her paintings reflect her personal surroundings and history, she delves into complex conceptual topics, such as urban decay and nature’s fundamental connections. She has a passion for the process, and views it as propagating the brilliant and expressive energy she has witnessed throughout her life.

Good Morning All, Over the next few months I will be uploading more work, so stay tuned. My hope are to include some paper pieces along with more stretched canvas. This past week has been an exciting and busy time in my life. I moved into a new studio in the historic Kansas City West Bottom's Live Stock Exchange Building. My studio has a gorgeous eastern view of the KC skyline. Additionally, I am prepping for a show at my university in November. More about that later :) Happy Thursday, Teresa

Comments About This Piece

Another Day is an intimate abstract painted on an 8x8" gallery wrapped canvas. Painted and inspired from my horizon and surroundings, I used acrylic paint and then finished the work with graphite. The sides are finished in cyan blue as an extension of the painting. It comes varnished and ready to hang. 

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
