From the Artist
Terri and her husband have traveled throughout the US and Europe, and recently safaried in Africa. Along the way, she has taken extensive photos as references for her paintings. “I love art, nature and traveling, and I am happy that I can combine my loves. Painting scenes from my photos brings back the memory, experience and the story of when I took the photo, and those feelings become a part of the painting. I also love drawing animals, and capturing their spirit and colors in a way we don’t always see, I love seeing my clients’ faces when they get their pet portrait” says Terri. Show now lives with her husband in Brunswick Forest in Leland, NC. Terri has been featured in the Leland Magazine, Forest View Magazine and the 2022 Wilmington Business to Business Journal. She is a member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina, the Art League of Leland, the Oak Island Art Guild and the Coastal Carolina Pastel Painters, has won several awards in NY, and has shown her work in several NC shows, including the NC Azalea Festival Art show.

Terri Moore works in pastels, which is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of powdered pigment and a binder, and is a medium that has the highest pigment concentration. Pigments used in pastels are the same as those used in other visual arts, such as oil paints, however the color effect of pastels is closer to the natural pigments than any other process. Pastels have been used by artists since the Renaissance, and have gained considerable popularity. Because pastels are pure pigment, pastel paintings glow with intense luminous color and rich velvety texture, reflect light without darkening refraction, and allow for very saturated colors. A pastel painting is made by moving the sticks over an abrasive surface, so Terri works on sanded papers such as UArt, Canson Mi-Tienes, and Pastelmat, among others. She paints landscapes from the many different places she has been, as well as animals, and enjoys doing pet portraits.
