“Having MS limits the things that I can do. Painting is a big outlet for me. Losing the use of my right hand has forced me to paint left-handed, inspiring the dynamic and creative nature of my art and opened up new avenues of expression without the sense of control I used to have with my right hand.”
Terri was born and raised in Salinas Valley, California and now currently lives in Oceanside. She began making watercolor paintings in high school and has engaged in a long practice of regular art making. Before facing challenges and limitations brought on by Multiple Sclerosis as an adult she enjoyed farming organic food with her husband and volunteering at local hospitals and nursing homes with their therapy dogs. She notes her 30 year marriage as one of her most valued accomplishments and values the opportunity to nurture her relationship with her husband daily. “I have learned that positive outlook is everything. My husband has been a great supporter of my growth as an artist and person. I paint to express my joy of life and the wonderful relationship we can grow and nurture.”
Terri participates in the Rancho San Luis Rey art group and enjoys the camaraderie she experiences there, “I get ideas and inspiration working with the other talented artists who are part of the group.” Terri describes that while making art “I feel empowered and enjoy the artistic revelation of myself. Terri feels that her participation in ArtLifting “has been a big inspiration. I appreciate being part of a group of artists on a communal journey to grow and be seen for our unique talents and abilities.”
