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.

About The Artist
I like shapes and textures, so I start a piece by building up layers of paint, paper and found items. It's an intuitive process. I have a general idea of where I'm going with a piece but like to let the media guide me along. I work with acrylic paints and mediums, found papers, graphite, ink and prisma colors. Some of my work also incorporates pigment transfers of my photography.
When people see my work on a gallery wall, they generally go right up and inspect it close up because at a distance one can't really see all the details in my work. I work on most of my pieces on a flat drafting table, so I am very close to the process and that is something that draws people into my work.
