About the Artist

Alongside more than 20 years in pharmaceutical sales and work as a chaplain, Pennington artist Teresa Anderson has pursued a love of art that started in college when she studied in Florence as a pre-med student at Dartmouth. After studying icon painting and medieval illumination with mentors Vladislav Andrejav and Jed Gibbons, Anderson has focused on Celtic illumination techniques found in medieval manuscripts like the Book of Kells, and has traveled to Dublin to study the ancient spirals of Newgrange.

While working full-time as a chaplain at LIFE St. Francis, she has taught weekend workshops that have featured highly stylized, colorful and often humorous designs.  Her work features both traditional and contemporary illumination techniques and captures the magic and sovereignty of Celtic art.
