I grew up a child of artist parents in Trinidad California, a small town known for its rain, fog, and coastal scenery. I spent most of my time outside at the beach, rivers, and in the woods which created a strong connection to nature. I studied drawing, painting, collage and ceramics; graduating from Humboldt State University with a bachelor’s degree in art.
Seeking more sun I moved to Central Oregon. Bend provided a natural beauty that continued to provide inspiration. Another change of scenery from the Mojave Desert to Chico California is the latest chapter in a collection of experiences for the development of my work. In my studio I can call on past and current experiences, visions and illustrations to create these unique impressions of the natural world. My physical journeys are reflected in my designs and I am intrigued to follow this path and see where it takes my art. I will keep exploring the outdoors to develop this vision of the natural world as I see it.
Teal Buehler is a fantastic artist.
Her clear, meaningful, ego-less content, passion, colors, composition are truly inspiring. Her subjects’ life force comes through to a viewer.
Elders have always criticized the art of the younger generation. Buehler has something to say. She makes art that alienates no one.
