Mo Teeuw is a member of the Institute of East Anglian Artists (IEA) and loves en plein air painting and actively encourages all her artist friends to join her outside. She likes to paint every day and claimed in January 2014, one of the wettest winters on record, that she only spent four days in the studio.
A former art teacher, Mo is self-taught but accomplished in oils, watercolours and acrylics. She is an exhibiting member of the Lincolnshire Artists Society, Norwich and Norfolk Art Circle, and the Welland Valley Art Society.
She has exhibited her oil paintings at the Mall Galleries with the ROI, NEAC and Society of Women Artists.
She enjoyed painting at the Royal Norfolk Show, despite the weather and an inch of water in her box easel on the first day. Some pictures were just “asking to be painted” including her bullocks “Waiting to go into the ring”, but it was her “Not so much fun at the fair” first foray into the cold and wet painting environment that earned her the joint Spirit of Plein Air Prize as it portrayed a puddle-deluged outfield around a struggling for custom fairground that spoke to the message of the “show must go on” for artists and vendors alike, despite the weather – and that is, indeed, the spirit of plein air.
