A native of the North Carolina mountains, Ms. Teachout is a writer and photographer now living and working on the Outer Banks. She credits her mountain life with “nurturing her imaginative mind from childhood.” About her work, she says “I live by one simple mantra: Life is Art. We are all artists. I am blown away by the fact that I am…someone’s creation. A magical moment shared between two lovers gave me life. This simple fact drives me to capture, recreate, and share the magic in every moment, and everything. My desire is simply to share my vision. To inspire and be inspired. To share with you, the viewer, a moment to step into my mind’s eye and see the world from my perspective. So that even only for one brief moment, you will feel the joy, sadness, or confusion the image gave to me… and when you walk away, you will know that life is art! And you are alive.”
