Terry attended the University of Nebraska At Omaha where he received his BFA. After a brief career in commercial art, he began to devote all his time to his first love, Fine Art. Pastels provided the challenge needed and proved to be the medium to create a brilliant sense of motion and breathe life into his wildlife subjects. Terry has achieved his own artistic identity. His paintings have been showcased throughout North America and Europe. Terry currently lives with his wife in Omaha, Nebraska.
