About Tere

As a Florida native, much of the artwork I produce is influenced by our community. Growing up in St. Petersburg as well as Key Largo, Florida, emphasis on marine and local flora and fauna has always been foremost when choosing subject matter for my artwork. As a Keys resident I am constantly on the water, boating, fishing and just enjoying the unique environment we are privileged to partake in. As a first generation Cuban-American, my heritage also plays an important role in my subjects. I may not have grown up in Cuba; however, family has instilled in me the pride, closeness, and heart so well known of that culture, and it comes out in my artwork. I am involved in the local community and have been able to use my talents to help promote various events that support the environment. I am proactive in donating my artwork to local causes such as Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, Chamber of Commerce, local school fundraisers and sports fishing events, and currently my it can be seen on the local blood drive T-shirts. My work has been featured on the cover of the 2011 Culture magazine, the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce news letter and I am an award winning member of the Art Guild of the Purple isles. I was involved in the recent Chamber of Commerce Angelfish project and was proud to be sponsored by The Key Largo Fisheries, my angelfish has found a permanent home at the Fisheries, thanks to the Hill family and can be viewed in their retail area. I am currently showing at the Key Largo Art Gallery, and am proud of being a part of such an elite group of award-winning artists. The encouragement and talent is inspiring to me and provides me with constructive critiques that allows me to grow as an artist. I have no formal training but have been very fortunate to be surrounded by great artists my entire life. Their encouragement to be as creative as possible has influenced the way that I view my subjects and has had a definite impact in the development of my style.
