Medium: Gallery Wrapped Giclee on Canvas About the Artist: Well into his career as an artist, Terry was fortunate to discover the pleasure and challenge of painting the "Koi" and the world they live in. As his art evolved, he found the Koi to be not only effective to the purpose and intention of his art but also an infective subject to paint. Immersing himself completely into his subject was an emersion into the surreal and fantastic world they live in and a journey of exploration that has revealed a world of ideas and inspiration for his paintings.
After gaining experience and confidence in painting the subject, he began to explore and experiment, not only the process of making his art but also the subject of his art, blending the history, ideals and many concepts associated to the Koi into his images. The time and effort he dedicates to his subject continues to open new dimensions for him to explore, giving him a broad creative freedom and giving his art its distinctive flavor and voice.
“It is my hope and intention above all, that my art has a positive and lasting effect on the viewer. Whether we lose ourselves in the endless horizons of a landscape or in an intimate view of the earth beneath our feet, there is an “infinity” for an artist to explore and discover, no matter what the subject.”
“Since I paint primarily from imagination, I enjoy a wide creative freedom that allows me to blend the lines between reality and the surreal. Many of the techniques and methods I have had to master as an artist over my career is now a part of the concoction that is my art today. The Koi, are but one ingredient in the recipe but they are essential, bringing life, color and the sense of calm and serenity into my art. It is what I was first compelled to capture and I was thankful that I was able to carry the effect onto my canvas, allowing anyone to have a piece of paradise in their home”.
Terry began his career as an artist at the age of 18 shortly after attending College to earn his diploma in Commercial Art in 1973. Since that time he has had a diverse and successful professional career as an artist, leading finally to a full-time devotion to his fine art.
Terry lives and works at his home and studio with his wife Jo-Anne and family located on beautiful Vancouver Island. His work is widely exhibited throughout the U.S. and Canada and is collected around the world.
