Terry has been working as an artist since 2011 after spending 6 years as a public school art teacher. Previously, he experienced a variety of careers including many years in the food service industry and owning a farm.
Terry primarily uses relief printing methods such as linoleum and woodblock along with monoprinting. He sometimes manipulate prints or cuts and layers them with other media to achieve a 3D effect.
His narrative pieces express a desire to tell a story while exploring themes of transformation and change. He uses representational and metaphorical elements together to create narratives that imply specific allegorical themes but are also open-ended and shift between reality and fantasy. He works to enhance his pieces by making his own frames and incorporating them into the pieces.
