Terry Beard was born in Canada and is currently bassed in Cambridge. She did a foundation course at West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham, stayed there to do a B.A.(Hons) in Textiles/Fashion.
Her work is mainly abstract, dealing with colour and colour relationships, and is open to the individual’s interpretation. She is inspired by direct observation of landscape and elements within it as well as other artists’ work. To begin with her work was made using silk screen printing and as she moved away from this technique she kept the soft and delicate gestures that this medium produced and translated this into her new paintings.
