Growing up in the Coachella Valley has instilled in
Terry a deep appreciation for the beauty found in the light of the
desert. Having spent his youth exploring the desert’s canyons and vistas
has given him an in-depth knowledge of the many places that lend
themselves to being painted in the manner that he is so well known for.
Terry says "I always work to raise my ability to portray beautiful light
and color on subjects in the most convincing way that I can".
