Barbara Teusink

Barbara Teusink is an award-winning artist with oil paintings hanging in private collections across the US. A Crooked Creek Art League Master Artist, she has won multiple First Place awards as well as numerous other awards in local and regional competitions. She is a juried in member of Oil Painters of America.

In her youth, Barbara loved drawing and other creative pursuits. However, in college she took the “sensible” route and earned a business degree. Her artistic pursuits were put on hold during her many years of working a demanding career in education technology. Upon retirement, Barbara decided to rekindle her creative side and took up painting.

A big believer in the power of community in both art and life, Barbara is very active in the Crooked Creek Art League. A multiple-term past president, she currently runs the digital presence for CCAL as well as planning and managing the League’s projects placing community art all around Chapin.

Barbara’s subjects include still life, floral, portrait, animals and landscape. A contemporary realist, she strives to capture and preserve the fleeting moments of life; an expression, the light, the season, a striking arrangement, or scene. Barbara accepts commissions. She loves working with clients
to help bring their memories and ideas to life in a custom painting. She also offers private lessons and mentoring for aspiring artists.
