Terri has a first-class honours degree in ceramics. She has spent much of her life championing the arts in schools here in UK and has run art projects in Kenya and Nepal. She was awarded a Tate Modern prize for her Masters Degree entitled ‘The Identity Project’ in which she pioneered the questioning and challenging of first year A Level Art students in Britain about their artistic values and beliefs. It was a project that turned art education on its head and has since been incorporated into the National Curriculum.

Terri specialises in telling stories through her large oil paintings, and she has a lifetime of stories to draw on. She and her two sisters were split up and brought up in care homes and with various foster families after both parents died in tragic circumstances.
Terri is exhibiting her own paintings, which pose deep psychological questions about memory that challenge peoples’ perceptions of childhood and adulthood.
