Paintings by Teresa Ochoa

"I've always been interested in art as far back as I can remember.  As a child I loved drawing but because I didn't have the guidance I needed, I took the commercial course in high school instead of the art course.  I wasn't happy in high school so after 2 years I left school and started working painting commercial items such as hand painted neckties, scarves, boutique items such as handbags, compacts, jewelry.  At about the age of 38 I took some evening classes at F.I.T. in textile designing and became a designer till I retired at the age of 70.  After my husband passed on I started taking classes at the Art Students League and have been doing it ever since.  I have enjoyed doing portraits at the league where there is such a variety of models.  I've won some awards along the way too.  My main interest is in painting and drawing."
