It is a vibrant, colorful journey that can only be described as: The Color Teil.
“Found a new favorite coffee table book. Have always loved Teil Duncan’s art and now it’s all in one place. Look’s great on the table and makes me feel a little more sophisticated when guests come over.”
– Craig Conover, star of Bravo TV show, “Southern Charm”
“Teil is inspired by light, movement, surprising color combinations, social interaction, and pattern. And she brilliantly infuses these elements to form abstracted, pixilated compositions.”
– Southern Home Magazine
From the Author
Born and raised in Columbus, GA, Teil Duncan developed a love for art as far back as she can remember. She attended Auburn University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art, and now lives and works as a full-time painter in Charleston, SC alongside her husband, Russell and son, Robert.
She is a follower of Jesus and is so thankful to Him for providing a job that she loves. Inspired by light, movement, surprising color combinations, social interaction, and pattern, her goal is to infuse these elements and form abstracted, pixilated compositions. No matter the subject, she strives to portray a balance of realism combined with loose abstraction, causing one to compliment the other.
