Terry is a local artist born in Walker, Newcastle Upon Tyne, and has been working as a full-time artist since the late 1980’s. He began by selling his work in a variety of venues, including shopping malls and outdoor markets. As his work increased in popularity he eventually opened his own gallery in the heart of Newcastle. His ranges of local scenes are always popular but he revels in the challenge of new subjects and mediums. In 2003 he was invited to join one of the UK’s largest Fine Art publishers, and spent the next 4 and half years with them, supplying original paintings which were then sold in galleries throughout the UK. He had many one-man shows during this period in different cities, including London. He currently enjoys being free-lance again and the freedom of expression that comes with it. Terry is married with four grown up sons and a much loved dog called Polly.
