Terri Brooks is an award-winning painter who has had a life long interest in the visual arts. After earning a degree in art at the University of Maine, Ms. Brooks began a 30 year career teaching art in public schools. Although she majored in sculpture while in college, she found it difficult to find space and fund the equipment necessary for that medium while working and raising a family. Her passion for color and need for a more portable medium led to a decision to turn to watercolor as he primary medium.
She began exhibiting in national shows in 2001. Since that time, Ms. Brooks’ work has been exhibited in over 30 national juried shows, and received numerous awards.
“My work is about the effects that light and atmosphere have on people and places. I am a keen observer of the world around me. With camera or sketchbook in hand, I seek to provide myself with the visual information necessary to work from back in the studio.”
Terri resides in Freedom, NH with her boys, husband Chuck and Newfoundland Owen.
