Teresa Strickland

United States

Terry Strickland paints realistic, conceptually provocative figurative oil paintings. They have a modern sensibility and vibrant color with an old master’s attention to detail. The results are beautiful, compelling paintings with universal themes that people relate to.

Much of Terry's work investigates the idea that a choice of costume can reveal or conceal truths about our shared humanity. One constant in Terry’s work is human connection. Her favorite way to paint a model is boldly and unabashedly making eye contact, creating an instant relationship between artist, viewer, and model.

Strickland's work has been widely collected, published, and exhibited in galleries and museums extensively throughout the United States. Her work is in the Bennett Collection. Her paintings have appeared in many prestigious magazines, such as Fine Art Connoisseur, The Huffington Post, International Artist, American Art Collector, and Artist Magazine.

Terry was a speaker at TEDx Birmingham in 2016. Find her talk about figurative art on YouTube. A book about her award-winning portrait series and exhibition, The Incognito Project is available.

Terry teaches and inspires oil painting students online through Terry Strickland Art on Patreon, throughout the Southern US, and through the Florence Studio in Florence, Italy. Her work is available online through Artsy, 33 Contemporary in Chicago, IL, and Abend Gallery in Denver, CO.
