TERRI FIELD

BIO

Terri graduated from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design with a double major of Illustration and Drawing. She was a recipient of a Fredrick Layton scholarship, and an worked in the MIAD galleries.

Before graduating she began a career as a graphic designer/illustrator and eventually full-time illustrator. Her work was featured regularly in magazines and on several covers including Astronomy, Earth, Birder’s World, Bead & Button, Model Railroader, The Writer, and more. She then pursued a career in freelance work and fine art while taking time at home with her two young children. Being a mom led her to opportunities like artist in residence at local schools and painting sets for local theaters. 

In 2018 she designed and implemented a sculpture, funded by the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts, titled "Where The Waters Meet". This 15' sculpture is located on the GPS point of the city of Oconomowoc and located near City Beach.


ARTIST STATEMENT

When I was five, I wrote in my kindergarten diary that I would be an artist when I grew up. Drawing and dance have been my passions ever since. My family has added music and theater to that list of loves. I'm so thankful to have been given the opportunity to continue creating.


My favorite art toys are color, shape, contrast and light. I like to play with contrasts and connections. I feel the connection between nature and spirituality, between trees and human beings, between objects and human beings. I like the contrast between music, vibrant life, and two-dimensionality. I love to see color and shape as windows into experience. All of my work is intuitive and inspired by my own life experiences.
