Terry’s primary goal with her work is to connect with the viewer by capturing light and color to create mystery or an evocative tone in a painting or with words.
Over the years, Terry has been developing and refining this goal as a calligrapher and painter, who trained first as an art major in college and later with accomplished artists in the fields of watercolor, oil painting, calligraphy and lately taking up acrylic texture. She is a member of the Washington Calligraphers Guild and has also been an instructor in the art of calligraphy at Piedmont Virginia Community College as well as privately.
Terry’s exhibits as a painter and calligrapher have included the University of Virginia Medical Center, the Martha Jefferson Outpatient Care Center, Skylight Studios, and other venues. She has exhibited for the Festival of the Book and joined a collaboration of women artists exhibiting at the McGuffey Art Center and the Academy of Fine Arts in Lynchburg, Virginia.
In recent years, Terry has partnered with Mary Alice Hostetter in the design and creation of jewelry. Please peruse Woodland Studios to view a range of styles in bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
