Terri Leo is an American artist born in Texas in the early 60’s and is of English and Spanish descent. Terri considers herself a photographer first. Having studied some of the related arts, she began looking at art in a whole new way. “I began to analyze every painting and photograph I was drawn to. Why did the artist do what they did—what were they trying to convey? What was the source of the light? My inspiration can come from anywhere, any time or place. I’m deeply moved by the work of Georgia O’Keefe, who relates to parallels between animate and highly sensual forces in nature. She sees her art as a study of natural forms at close range, as if seen through a magnifying lens. I continue to develop my artistic perspective through the study of painting and other mixed media.”
Terri believes that art happens when you let it. “I always say, approach your art with as much preparation as you can—and then, just let it happen. You have to be willing to push the limits…and then let go. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect light. I think it will be a lifelong endeavor that is up close and personal. The world around me becomes a steady flow of inspiration. I seek in my art to internalize nature–My body of work is an extension of my heart…timeless, and simultaneously grounded in this moment.”
Terri’s work hangs in several private collections throughout the United States.
