Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Teesa Christie is a self taught watercolour artist who lives and works in Port Moody, BC. She is of mixed-race Japanese-Canadian descent and is inspired by the expressiveness and simplicity of Japanese art. In addition to her wildlife paintings, she likes to explore her Japanese heritage and themes of multiculturalism in her work. Growing up surrounded by nature, Teesa has developed a deep love of the natural world. She loves painting the flora and fauna of Vancouver, BC as part of her mission to educate people about the species that live here and to encourage their conservation. Teesa is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Port Moody Art Association and Art Focus.

Samples of my work
I think encounters with wildlife and nature are a magical experience, and I try to bring that same magic into my art. I believe that one of the best ways to get people to act on climate change is to connect them with nature and the incredible species that live in their own backyards and city parks. My art is all about celebrating nature, in particular local wildlife and wildflowers. I hope to teach people to recognize common birds and wildflowers, to take the time to appreciate them and to work to preserve them and the ecosystems that sustain them.
