Island Gallery West-July Featured Artist Terri Westbrook Juy
Terri Westbrook is a painter whose style leans toward impressionism, working primarily in pastel media.
She is inspired by the places she has traveled to and lived, including Charleston, SC; Anna Maria, FL and the Florida Panhandle. Terri discovered later in life her love and talent for creating. She has learned the basics of art and the nuances of pastel art only in recent years from online and in-person instruction. Her paintings are mostly of nature, particularly landscapes and waterscapes, with surprising use of color.
According to Terri, “My paintings are journal entries . . . my response to what I see when I’m out in nature or my emotions about a place I visited many years ago. Making art is like meditation for me. I hope people enjoy my pieces that come from my heart.” You can see more of Terri’s work at: http://www.terriwestbrook.com
