About This Experience

Sandy Terry loves to capture movement and light in her work and nuanced colours observed in natural settings. She will use a stay-wet palette to build layers of acrylic pigment using opaque and transparent colours to create large, bold and dramatic 3-D-like florals. Her use of a self-taught scumbling-like brush technique helps to soften edges and blend colours.

About Your Host

Host image

Sandy Terry is drawn to capture the simple elegance in the curve of a leaf, subtle shifts in colour and the radiance of light as it interacts with form, all in a moment in time. Her work is dramatically representational, with loosely flowing brushwork and richly layered pigment to achieve greater depth.

Growing up in NJ, close to the cultural hub of New York City, she felt challenged and inspired to create by having rich exposure to galleries, museums, and theatre. She came to Canada as a foreign exchange student and stayed. While raising her family, she was a teacher for over 30 years in the public system. She started her creative journey as a late emerging artist and has not looked back! Being surrounded by the abundant natural beauty of the Canadian West Coast nurtures her creative expression.

Sandy's work has garnered numerous awards and features in publications. She has earned Senior Signature Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists, SFCA, and Elected Status with the Society of Canadian Artists, SCA.
