Terry has created a truly unique style that sets his work apart. Viewers and collectors of Terry’s work enjoy oil paintings that present contemporary realism with an impressionistic edge and have been termed, “A breath of fresh air in a world of sameness”. Terry did not pursue art as a career until moving to southern California following a divorce. While there, he realized that painting was his “passion” and true avocation and decided to return to Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho to dedicate hi life to painting in 1994. Impressed with Terry’s style, a wildlife collector approached him to do a painting of a very large Scale Elephant. He has since become nationally and internationally known for his “larger than life” images of African and North American Animals, which he encountered on numerous Safaris and treks. Terry’s style of painting was created thru a natural progression of experimentation and internal feeling of color. His subject matter is diverse, ranging from beautiful exotic Serengeti scenes, lively and romantic Tuscan landscapes, bold prominent still life’s , and the Animals of the great Northwest where he lives.
