Sandy Terry

Originally from northern New Jersey, Sandy was inspired to create by having rich exposure to galleries, museums and theater in the cultural hub of the NJ/NYC area. She came to central Canada as an exchange student while attending University and currently embraces the West Coast of British Columbia as her home. Every day she delights in the abundant natural beauty surrounding her! Painting florals mirrored her own flowering as an artist, following years of sparking children’s imaginations, as a teacher within the Public School System.

​Her work is in private collections in Canada and the United States.
