Trina Teele is an artist and life-long resident of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, who believes that creative expression, is always a worthy pursuit. Her great interest in the essential and energizing role art and creativity play in our lives has inspired both her paintings and her creativity practice. This passion for creating keeps her collaborating with and studying alongside other artists be they established or beginners.
Inspired by nostalgia for summers at Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Long Island NY, Trina Teele’s realist paintings applaud the magnificence of the ocean. There is often a calm serenity to Trina’s paintings. This is what the artist remembers finding most beautiful and compelling about the sea as a child. Although solitude and stillness are explored a great deal by Trina, she also experiments painting the collaborative excitement and the momentum of wind-filled sails that she witnessed inspired her late father, an avid sailor.
The artist, also a graphic designer and private art teacher, remembers her art school advisor telling her class “after five years, the majority of you will never pick up a brush again.” She felt determined to not let this be her story.
Trina received a BFA degree in both painting and graphic design from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
