Teesa Christie is a Japanese-Canadian watercolour artist who was born and raised in Port Moody, BC. She has been drawing since childhood, starting with the cartoon and anime characters from her favourite tv shows, then moving on to realistic portrait and figure drawing in her late teens. She discovered watercolour painting in her mid twenties and has never looked back.
Growing up close to nature, she has developed a deep love of the natural world. She specializes in painting portraits, wildlife and flowers, striving to capture not just the likeness of her subjects, but also to capture their emotions and personalities.
Teesa is a member of Art Focus and the Port Moody Art Association.
