about the artist
Theresa Long, a Missouri artist and art teacher, expresses her passion for the natural world through her paintings, gardens and conservation efforts at Bethany Springs. Since 1995, she and her family have worked to encourage native species by tending and reconstructing woodland, prairie and stream habitat on their farm. This serves as inspiration for her paintings and has sparked a specific interest in Painting for Conservation.
