Terry was born in Newcastle's East End and had a love of drawing from an early age. After working in a variety of fields including interior design and architectural work he decided to take the plunge and began painting full time almost twenty five years ago.
In that period he has sold his work in many locations including shopping malls, outdoor markets and local galleries. For 6 years he ran his own gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne, producing a wide range of subjects in lots of different mediums. Local scenes were always popular but with a restless nature he could never resist tackling something new that he found exiting and interesting. Terry was invited and joined one of the UK's largest art publishers and for several years produced a body of work which they distributed to galleries throughout the UK and this included a number of one man exhibitions in major cities including London.
His many varied commissions have included large murals for a private swimming pool to portraits and work for local authorities.Being semi retired means nothing for Terry he continues to challenge himself creatively and always looks forward to new ideas for his artwork.
Terry is married with four sons and one very spoilt girl A Greyhound called Polly.
