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 pieces feature energy and colour and are influenced by nature and 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). 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".
