I have a background of over forty years in advertising, design and photography and am an exhibiting artist with the Royal Art Society at Lavender Bay http://www.royalart.com.au/artists/#/terina-jones/. My large abstract and impressionism pieces are intended to take the viewer on a journey that looks beyond the visual reality. They feature energy and colour and are influenced by my passion and connection with nature and explore life experiences. Connecting with inner emotions is paramount in the artworks creation and all are generated from mind and never a replication of an actual visual stimulus. Production involves both physical and emotional connection and is why energy is very evident. I never overwork paint materials and start with an idea and then let the artwork evolve which creates an artwork that expresses freedom. My move to the public arena in September 2015 has been rewarded with awards including "Best in Show" and "First" in art competitions (Northern Suburbs A&H Society, Castle Hill Art Society, Parramatta Open Art Award and Baulkham Hills Art Society), finalist in acquisitive 2017 OakHill Art Prize, finalist Hunters Hill Art Prize and selected as an exhibiting artist at 2017 Hunters Hill Art Festival Pop Up Gallery, "First" Acrylic/Oil Orange Blossom Festival Art . I supply to Interior Designers and commissioned works are available for sale or hire . My complete collection of artworks can be viewed on Facebook under "Dynamic Art".
