Artist Statement:
My paintings are inspired by the beauty of wildlife, horses, people, and the captivating images of the West. As you can see from my work, I'm in love with bright, fun colors. When I start a new painting I'm filled with a sense of adventure and excitement. Creating these colorful paintings brings me great joy and I never tire of exploring new color combinations. My hope is that people will be energized by my work and feel an emotional connection to the animals and people I portray.
Theresa Paden is an award-winning artist who is known for unique paintings that feature vivid colors and expressive brush work.

Cowgirl Magazine said of her work, “Paden’s paintings are, in a word, sentient. Mixed into the bright, bold pigments is a feeling of being in the physical and spiritual presence of her subjects.”
