Therese James
A Happy Day

2014

About

A Happy Day - a great interpretation of a wedding celebration. The happy couple bobbing away to start their new life together. Therese's paintings are filled with joy and this one is brimful of it. Therese James is a full time artist painting and exhibiting since 1993. As a member of the Naive School she works from a compulsion to recreate what she feels and sees. As a self taught naive she relies purely on an instinctive approach to her art and has developed her own style with expressive characters who inhabit the world of her paintings. Therese gets much of her inspiration from the places and literature of her native Wales and the West Country of England. She says she paints the way she paints because she doesn't know "the rules" and her paintings are a journey of discovery. Therese has been selected for "Welsh Artist of the Year" and been invited to represent The Countryside Council for Wales in exhibitions at The Royal Welsh Show and The National Eisteddfodd.
