Two New Painting Series

During the pandemic Tevlin created a series of oversized canvases entitled “Messengers During A Time of Pestilence”. Each oil on canvas work measures 6ft X 5ft. They may be viewed on The Tevlin Atelier website.

In January 2022, Tevlin’s unexpected, mid-pandemic, breast cancer diagnosis resulted in a series of 8 paintings called “The Topic of Cancer”.

Images (top to bottom): My Aurora Borealis and St Agatha Martyr, patron saint of breast cancer patients. Both from The Topic of Cancer Series.

Why paint the story of a personal encounter with the Big C? As an intelligent, educated, and well informed woman, Tevlin found that she was constantly surprised at what was going to happen to her next “as a cancer patient.” In a way, she says, “It also helped me feel more in control.” Each step along her cancer journey includes an introspective text describing the medical intervention, and her thoughts about it. Good fortune was with her all the way, she declares, “To be able to paint, rather than close down, during such a traumatic experience. That’s just plain luck.”

You can view these works on her website or at her upcoming open house.
