1963 - ?

Teresa Bavington-Barber

As Teresa June Dungar, she was born at Norwich, Norfolk in December 1963, daughter of Harold Willie P. Dungar (15 May 1924-1995) and his wife Evelyn Miriam née Easter (1923-2004), who married at Acle, Norfolk in 1947. Teresa married at Norwich in 1983, Andrew James Bavington Barber and paints under the name of Teresa Bavington-Barber. Having a love of art from an early age, Teresa studied art at Norwich. As time progressed, and with her children grown-up, she pursued her art full-time from her studio at Ipswich but as a sufferer of multiple sclerosis she is often unable to work when Teresa began to experiment with mixing medias, such as applying hessian to the canvas before painting to create the feel of grasses and reeds and has also used sand in beach paintings, driftwood and beads and is inspired mostly by flowers and landscapes. Her work can often have an abstract perspective, exploring the relationship between colour and texture and more recently has moved into stitching over painted backgrounds to create a different feel to the picture. She has exhibited at Ipswich, Norwich and Bury St Edmund's and her work is on view at in Dedham Art and Craft Centre, but she also works on commission. A full member of Suffolk Open Studios from her studio at 12 Clive Avenue, Ipswich
