Theresa Shepherd


Creating art has been a huge part of Theresa’s life. From early childhood to the present, creating art was what she was meant to do.

Over 20 years ago she began painting in watercolor and her passion for painting in this medium has only increased. She also has a huge passion for teaching and has spent the last 7 years teaching classes as well as private and semi-private lessons. Theresa believes there is nothing more rewarding than sharing her love of art and seeing others get excited about painting in watercolor too.

Theresa was born in Colorado, has lived in Virginia the past 36 years, but spent most summers in Colorado. She moved to Chromo, CO permanently in 2018.

During her time in Virginia, she became a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, a member of the Central Virginia Watercolor Guild, and juried member of the James River Art League. She has been juried into numerous watercolor shows, as well as being awarded The Jurors Choice Award in the Central Virginia Watercolor Guild Annual Show. She also received the Award of Distinction in the Virginia Watercolor Society Annual Show. Theresa is a current member of the Colorado Watercolor Society.

She was honored to have been accepted in the national publications, The Best of Watercolor Splash 15, which publishes once a year. She was again accepted in The Best of Watercolor Splash 17.

Living in the mountains has always been a dream for her, surrounded by the natural beauty that abounds. Never running out of ideas, Theresa believes she has enough paintings to paint for three lifetimes.
