David Terry

Description

A Tennessee native, Terry has been described as possessing a “world view – a coherent thematic approach buried in the Southern gothic sensibility of narrative, memory, and moral complexities” and is widely known for his numerous gallery shows, book cover illustrations, advertising pieces and many privately commissioned works. All of his work is drawn or painted solely in pen & ink on paper, with tinting done in watercolor, pastel pencils, and gold inks. Terry’s academic training is in Literature, with degrees from The University of the South, Middlebury, and Duke, with additional studies at UVA and Oxford. He lives in Durham, North Carolina and (just for the record) has terriers, none of whom are remarkably well-behaved.
