Terry Kruse, the artist... truly unique, unrepeatable semi-abstract landscapes & wildlife art.

Working as an artist works well with real estate. I am able to take breaks to create and think in between real estate contracts.

Abstract Landscapes. Terry Kruse creates flowing dreamscapes reminiscent of a fabulous garden, mountain retreat or tropical vacation.
As a child, Terry would spend hours drawing while sitting across the table from her dad, a talented but undiscovered artist. He would create these beautiful drawings or other pieces and she would watch, learn and sometimes copy. As she grew, she chose work as a graphic designer but continued creating and experimenting in visual art.
I attended several art workshops and classes over the years, some of them a great distance from home. In these events I would follow the artist examples and then unsatisfied go off and do my own thing. Truthfully, I was there to see if I could find the type of art that made my heart sing.

The Process. Terry’s process involves the manipulation of canvas with instinctive, controlled pouring of acrylic paints, usually requiring several pours, each affecting the viscosity of the proceeding layers. This layering changes the palette, creating vibrant colours with rich hues, while showing tremendous movement and depth. The lively art somehow breaths and has a visual texture that can’t be created with a brush.
It was when I let the paint flow and blend that I was truly able to express the joy and freedom I was missing in other forms of art. Pouring helped the composition evolve in a choreography between me, the artist, and the paints. With freedom of movement came an overall satisfaction from a disciplined aesthetic balance.
