Terry was born and raised in San Francisco, CA (fifth generation native) and still considers it one of the most beautiful cities in the world. She moved to Sacramento, CA in 1978 and discovered the ever-changing scenes of the American River. She continues to explore and revisit many of Northern California's landscapes including Yosemite, Monterey vicinity, Lake Tahoe, the Sierra, and the entire coastline. The photo  is of her Grandfather doing a headstand on overhanging rock at Glacier Point, Yosemite in 1903.  "The quality evident in a good painting comes from the interaction of the subject and the artist's inner self." Education:- Took adult art classes at De Young Museum, San Francisco, as a youth. Had numerous art classes at Sacramento City College, American River  College and Cosumnes River College with:
