Theresa Vandenberg Donche

"Freestyle, gestural, and intuitive: it's not what gets painted, it's how it is painted. The physicality creates an honest personal expression."

Theresa Vandenberg Donche paints in a freestyle approach, using acrylic, pencil, ink, and oils to define her work. Using intuitive gestures and bold, physical marks, she creates energetic line and color that merge conformity with uninhibited expression. Her art invites viewers be pulled into line and color, and to dance within the piece.

Theresa Vandenberg Donche builds acrylic paint on canvas until a rich texture is developed. Using ink for loose, fluid lines, pencil for structure, and oil stick for rich, textural lines, she lays down marks in swift, undefined movements and gestures.

Theresa Vandenberg Donche earned a BA in graphic design from San Diego State University. She has also studied painting and monotyping with renowned teachers throughout California. She has taught abstract painting at Bravo School of Art, Art Academy of San Diego, and Borrego Springs Art Institute.
