Creating Art

Every Day of My Life

I am a cancer survivor twice now and I was in an abusive marriage for 30 years….. But I couldn’t be more happy to be alive right now! Weird huh! Like the mythical phoenix burns to ashes, I feel like I’ve been reborn, to start a new life. I’ve been wanting to do this, since, forever!! I’m painting full time.

I’m so giddy I can hardly stand it. I have the youthful excitement of a 12 year old. I have SO many ideas, dreams and plans to paint different images. I hope I have enough days, months to do them all!

I’m almost an empty nester. I’ve dedicated my entire life for the happiness of my two girls. But it’s me time now. I don’t know how much more time I have to live. But I’m going to make it count. It’s go time. I feel truly free to do the things I’ve dreamed of for a very long time.

Watch out world!

Fast and fun

Acrylic Painting

I love painting with acrylic because it’s fast and fun. I love texture so there’s plenty of it when I paint. Acrylic offers bright, non fading colors and lots of detail.

Traditional & classic

Oil Painting

I’m classically trained in oil paints. I’ve used oils more than any other medium I’ve tried. I’ve always felt the most comfortable with oils. Rich colors and creamy textures it’s a wonderful medium to use. Capturing the beauty of the landscapes of Park City goes hand in hand with oils!


Encaustic Painting

This bees wax based paint is a versatile and dimensional medium. I have embedded a variety of materials into the wax including: coins, leaves, paper, metal, beads, wire, paper and fiber. These paintings are highly textured and full of fun detail.

About the artist

Jenny Terry

I’ve been painting and drawing ever since I was a little girl. I remember when mom enrolled me into an oil painting class when I was in 1st grade. I never stopped. I graduated from Art center college of design in Pasadena with a Bachelor of Arts degree in illustration with honors in 1989. I still enjoy creating art every day of my life. I love being versatile. I love and work with all types of mediums. When I’m not painting I volunteer my time teaching art to elementary or substitute teach for middle, junior high and high school kids. Children have a natural love for art like no other and it’s a joy to teach to them.


“Wild and Free” Series

This horse series reflects two things; my lifelong love for horses and beginning a new life after fleeing an abusive marriage. I see horses and me with a similar mindset. We both share strength, power, personality and passion. I have inner strength whereas the horse has exterior strength. Even though horses have physical strength they can be incredibly gentle. We are both filled with kindness and sensitivity but have a strong spirit to persevere through all life’s challenges and we will always continue loving, surviving and thriving.
