Terry Burke

Terry Burke loves to draw landscapes, stone carvings, ancient artefacts and wildlife.  Her work uses images of wading birds seen in Costa Rica, hummingbird moths spotted in the South of France and beetles which are partly drawn from nature but also inspired by Egyptian scarab beetles.

Terry enjoys exploring colour, an essential aspect of her work. She also likes to play with elements of composition, balance, line and texture which she combines with an instinctive approach to painting. Her favourite materials are acrylic paint and pastel on textured paper but has also experimented with mixed media.

Terry lives and works in Bristol.  She studied at Bower Ashton, and Wimbledon School of Art (now a college of the University of the Arts London).  In the past she has shown work at the Watershed, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and now exhibits regularly in the Totterdown Arts Trail.
