For most of her life Teri Starkweather has loved to paint. She discovered her passion in high school and went on to study at Art Center College of Design, Atlanta College of Art, and California State University at Northridge. She received a BFA and teaching credential. She taught art for high school students for about six years before deciding to paint full time.

Teri became known for her still life paintings which are bathed in sunlight in the 1990s. Her realistic watercolors have been included in many watercolor books. One of her works graced the cover of Textures and Surfaces, published by North Light Publishers in 2000. Inside of Painting the Many Moods of Light, published by North Light in 1999, Starkweather demonstrated her painting technique in a chapter called “create sparkling window lit still lives in watercolor”.

In 2010 Teri won the American Artist cover competition with her painting Sunflowers and Coffee, which was on the cover of the June issue of American Artist Watercolor magazine. Teri also paints in oils on canvas and exhibits these paintings at Cove Gallery in Laguna Beach. Her work is included in the November 2015 issue of Southwest Art Magazine in an article about realism.

She is interested in pursuing realism as it relates to the natural world. Her most recent subject matter are flowers and shells and other natural objects, as well as colorful glass vases and bottles. She maintains that the main subjects of her paintings are the light and happiness that her paintings portray.

She has shown her artwork in various galleries throughout the United States and also internationally in Italy and China. Since moving to the Laguna Beach area she has painted some of the local beaches and has participated in showing at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts.
