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’s work is influenced by years of living in the bleak Midwest and Great Lakes region, burying roadkill, traveling by bike, and working with wildlife. They recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest, where savage coasts lined with dead seabirds and foggy slug-filled old growth forests are creeping into their paintings.

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.
