“Terrie believes that making art is a deep-seated need in every human being. She says, “Wellness begins when we visualize our internal fears, anxieties, hopes and dreams. We access these hidden aspects of our personalities through the process of making art. The images we create become sacred artifacts that tell us who we are and change how we understand ourselves in relationship to the world.”

Terrie studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and took the Intensive Studies Program at the Ottawa School of Art. A dual degree in theology through the Centre for Christian Studies and the University of Alberta finally brought her passion for art, worship and social justice together. Terrie is self-employed and lives in Iroquois, Ontario with her husband, Bill.

Recently she has been experimenting with ‘art in an hour’ workshops with various groups. She is a member of The South Grenville Guild of Fine Art in Prescott, and the Focus Art Association in Cornwall, Ontario. Her artwork has been displayed in numerous juried exhibits in Brockville, Cornwall and New Brunswick. Terrie also shares her artwork through community presentations and educational events as well as during worship services throughout the Seaway Valley.”
