Judge-Terry Strickland

Terry Strickland’s realistic, contemporary figure paintings begin with personal inspirations and narratives that she translates using oil paint into universal stories. She has seen first hand how art, particularly realistic figurative work, has the power to foster empathy in those viewing it and creating it.
Terry Strickland was born in Florida and raised on the Space Coast. After graduating from the University of Central FL with a BFA in Graphic Design, she had an interesting and varied art career, turning to full time figure painter in 2005. She has lived in the Birmingham Metro area of Alabama since 1994.
Terry’s realistic, contemporary figure paintings begin with personal inspirations and narratives that she translates using oil paint into universal stories. Her work is playful and poignant as she explores life’s transitions, change, and themes of light and love. Concepts are revealed as her models play dress-up allowing costumes to reveal truth.
Terry’s TEDx Birmingham talk about art and empathy may be found on YouTube. Terry teaches on-going oil painting classes at Forstall Art Center in Birmingham, AL, workshops in the Southeast and in Florence, Italy.
