Artist Statement

When she discovered painting she knew that she had to express herself through color. A quote from Vincent Van Gogh, “The only time I feel alive is when I am painting.”, comes close to how Terry feels. She is constantly striving to find just the right value and hue to capture the loveliness that she sees in everyday life. She draws from her spiritual feelings about beauty and love to bring warmth, and even whimsy to her viewers. Her delicious dessert paintings are an example that whimsy and her joyfulness.

One subject of her dessert paintings are contemporary images of donuts. The paintings are fun and colorful but they represent more than just “sweet confections”. The circle is a symbol of eternity and each donut has a single bite taken from different sections. This is like a clock’s hands showing the passing of time. Recently she had a health problem that made her rethink the time we have on earth. The experience brought her a personal insight. Her motto now is “Life is sweet, take a bite”
