About teagan

Teagan White is an artist and illustrator depicting flora and fauna at the threshold of life and death. Their delicate gouache and watercolor paintings and intricate line drawings use poetic allegory to lament the tragic relationship between humans and the rest of the Earth, and to explore the tender reciprocity and carnal discord that coexist seamlessly in all of Nature. Through muted colors, ornamental layouts, and meticulous detail, the work challenges viewers to delve beyond aesthetic allure or scientific dogma, and allow empathy and mysticism to guide their interpretation.

Teagan lives in the bleak Midwest with a cat named Bug, and spends free time riding bikes, trying to be friends with seagulls, holding unexpected animal funerals, volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation center, reading tarot cards, and vanishing into the woods.

In addition to creating gallery pieces, Teagan is a member of The VACVVM illustration collective, and makes picture books and other works for children under the name Tiny Moth Studios.
