Teresa Poole is a London based painter and former interior designer / applied arts specialist whose work is inspired by Japanese screens and the decorative arts of the 17th and 18th century. She says, "I want to explore the relationship between art and the beholder, and how a painting affects its surroundings and the emotions of an onlooker... I use metal leaf, colour and composition to realize these concepts, and to draw the onlooker into an enchanted more peaceful world." She sees her work metaphorically as a garden: whether portraying delicate sakura petals against a background of mustard-toned hillocks, Japanese-panel-inspired portraits, or applying gold leaf to trompe-l’oeil wall displays, her works are not only visually stunning, but resonant with her long emotional attachments.
