“Sharing my joy and inspiring others to find their own path has been a result of giving myself permission to paint.”
Known for her bold, spirited style and use of vivid color, Terez Tyni’s oils create a sense of peace in her landscapes that capture the vibrancy of California’s central coast.
Her recent works are more about allowing the spirit to just take over and let the energy create the movement to direct the paint in a more abstract expression with a pallet knife and thick antipasto strokes.
Raised in Santa Barbara and then moving to the central coast in 1985 to raise a family, as with many women, juggled family businesses where she kept her finger in the art world. The early years she took watercolor workshops –helped her husband with a local restaurant and then evolved into another personal biscotti manufacturing business which she sold after 15 years and moved to the north county of Paso Robles in 2005. Along the way she became a stylist for a direct clothing company called CAbi. The business allowed her to work part time and enjoy her new love painting with oils full time.
Beverly Wilson, Ken Christianson, Sally Tippman, the late John Barnard, Anne Laddon, Michele Byrne, Elio Camacho, Sara Weber and John Cosby are some of the teachers she studied with.
Terez has inspired many women to get back to their first love of art, which is their essence, to try new things and to embrace that.
Terez has shown and displayed her work and received many awards and recognition
