Following a highly
successful career in advertising as Art Director for one of the worlds largest
agencies, J. Walter Thompson, in their Vancouver office, Terry returned to
England in 1972.
He started to paint the Yorkshire Dales in watercolour and the response to his
work from the public and press was very encouraging, prompting him to diversify
into Limited Edition prints to satisfy demand for his work.
As his style matured, Terry began to diversify in his subject matter and the
media he used. He is now just as at home painting the Scottish Highlands, rural
France and Italy, as he is the Moors and the Dales of Yorkshire. His genius for
capturing light on landscape produces the most magic results.
One of his ‘claims to fame’ is for the nude photographs that he took of the W.I.
ladies for the ‘Alternative Calendar’ which became world famous and made into
the film ‘Calendar Girls’, starring Julie Walters and Helen Mirren.
