Inspired by Elton John's song, Tiny Dancer, Blue Jean Baby (which is also the first line of the song) is made to look like denim. "It is not made of denim, but suggestive of that," says artist Terri Bell. "It is instead a collage of painted and torn raw canvas. The canvas was prepared with blue paint and subtle circular shapes underlying the top coat of blue. The fabric was then ripped into random pieces and re-fitted together." The result is a calming, minimal, and textural composition.

Artist Terri Bell constructs highly detailed geometric fields that dance to life with engaging colors and soft edges. As a young child, Terri always wanted to paint, draw, or play imaginative games. She entered college as an art major and received important mentorship from several teachers. Unfortunately, it was at this point that Terri’s art career was put on hold. "I had to make a couple of detours along the way, and ended up changing my major to political science," she says, "which led me to work in a high stress, high profile state government position." Terri’s creative pursuits were more limited but ever-present. "Art was the balance in my life and I never gave up my dream." Through hard work and determination, she has returned to her calling as a full-time career artist. When she’s not painting, Terri enjoys cooking, container gardening, and spending time with her husband and two Yorkies.
