Hot Springs, North Carolina
Terry grew up in Belgium among farmlands and spent time at building worksites since her father was a master stone carver. She was exposed to sculpting and gothic art from an early age and some of that influence is reflected in the shapes and forms within her paintings.
Terry's art has become influenced by her concern for wildlife habitat. While painting, Terry imagines the wildness below the surface, the untouched pond, the hiding place for frogs, the branches for the birds and other wondrous creatures who continue to live and thrive.
She also creates images and collages derived from world events and common life experiences. These include the figure, architectural elements and found objects.
Terry lived in Charlotte for more than three decades and has recently relocated to Hot Springs, NC. She also exhibits work in the River Arts District of Asheville and her own gallery in Hot Springs.
