Where your ideas come to life... 

  Where ideas come to life.

Fine Artist and Graphic Designer, Terri Horricks
-Freelancing for over 30 years-

"At one time computer layout work was my day job, while painting and drawing remained my passion. Today both forms of expression influence the other and often merge.

Being able to draw and paint has its advantages with graphic design work. It allows me flexibility and possibilities when working out issues. On the other side of the coin, the boundaries of print media have trained me to keep my fine art compositions clean and simple, giving attention to the details."

The medium I choose for a painting is usually dictated by the subject and size of the piece. For large format paintings and murals I like to use acrylic paint, and for smaller paintings I’ll often use watercolour or a combination of mediums. I also use pencil, ink and art pens for architectural drawings and mixed media in abstract work.

As I have a tendency to absorb the energy around me, the creative process has become my filter as well as my voice.
