Terri Hanson was born in Prince Rupert BC a while ago and has always enjoyed the outdoors. This comes through continually in her choice of subject with mountain and seascapes forming the balance of her work. Her medium of choice recently has been oil but she has worked in acrylic, pastel, charcoal, textiles and even wood.

Terri's work has been recognized by the Federation of Canadian Artists where she holds an Active Member status. She is continually upgrading her knowledge of materials and techniques through workshops and study sessions with various recognized artists including Robert Genn, Rick McDermitt, Mike Svob and Greta Guzek.

Her works are displayed locally at the Sechelt Art Gallery and the Daffy Dillydown Gallery. A number of privately owned pieces are also on display from London to Hawaii and California to Alberta. Recently she completed another large mural at a county park on the island of Hawaii bringing the total to three commissioned works now on display there.

Her volunteer efforts include work with the Gibsons School of the Arts as a workshop facilitator and committee member choosing instructors and distributing informational material. She is also very active as a volunteer with the Sechelt Arts Centre as a gallery representative.

Lately, her favourite pastime is heading out for a quiet time with her best pal, Desi, and her pochade box for a plein aire session in the environment which has proven so fruitful for her.
