Award winning watercolorist Teresa Ascone has enjoyed a life-long love affair with the Alaskan landscape. "I remember walking to school and gazing, entranced at the breathtaking beauty of the snowy mountains. I was fascinated by the virgin woods, the rocks and streams of my childhood". Teresa's fascination with the landscape eventually led to painting in 1978. "I was nearly obsessed with the desire to communicate my reverence and love, my excitement for especially beautiful areas.
Teresa's paintings have appeared regularly in juried shows in Alaska and Outside. Her work has been featured in numerous solo shows in Alaska and Japan, and has appeared on the covers of numerous magazines and university directories. She was the subject of a Public Television program entitled, "Landscapes of the Imagination", produced and directed by Eric Wallace and aired on KAKM.
