As a textile artist Terry’s work has consisted of designing and making hand woven tapestries, tufted wall hangings and experimental textile works. Terry’s tapestries tend to be made from traditional materials such as wool, cotton, linen and silk and range from the very large pieces for public and corporate spaces to miniature pieces using more unusual materials, like pine needles, driftwood and willow. My works in the tufted medium are always made to commission and usually for public or corporate spaces.
The inspiration for Terry’s art usually comes from the world of nature, and can be as diverse as studying the changing colours through a season or textural studies of local harvest fields. Terry is inspired by colours from plants and flowers and have woven a large series of pieces based on flower borders and gardens, which has been ongoing for more than fifteen years.
