Teresa Booth Brown is an artist and teacher best known for her use of collage in oil painting, mixed-media drawings, and printmaking. Her collage materials come from a wide range of sources including fashion magazines, discarded teaching materials, and obsolete textbooks. Strong color, abstracted imagery, and architectural geometry distinguish her work. Teresa studied at Reed College, the Museum Art School, and Bennington College; and continues a teaching tradition which helps artists to identify and develop unique and individual directions in their own work. Her teaching focus also includes making art experiences and art-making activities which are accessible to everyone. She is the Artist Programs Coordinator for the Aspen Art Museum, teaches at the Pitkin County Jail, and is summer faculty at  La Napoule Art Foundation in the South of France. She was the interim Director of Painting, Drawing and Printmaking at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in 2017. Teresa has been awarded residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the Ucross Foundation, the American Academy in Rome,  the Campo Artist Colony in Uruguay, and La Napoule Art Foundation. She is the 2019-20 recipient of the Marion International Fellowship Grant. Teresa is currently the Artist Programs Coordinator at the Aspen Art Museum.
