Terry Ganey is a self-taught artist who loves to paint both the NC coastal and country worlds around her. From the farmhouse to the coast, her work encompasses the southeastern NC beauty around her. Terry, a proud native of Wilmington, fell in love with art at an early age. From the time she could grasp one of those chubby elementary pencils in her hands, she knew that she and art were simply meant to be.
Terry works in multiple mediums, but these days, her favorite style of working is laying down a watercolor base on paper and adding in accents of ink, gouache, pastels or color pencils in a more illustrative style.
You can find Terry most days in her studio at The Artworks on Willard Street, which is in South Front District of downtown Wilmington.
Terry is listed with the Wilmington Arts Council, and she is a member of both the Wilmington Arts Association and the Oak Island Art Guild.
Terry, along with her partner in crime, hubby Andy, reside in Wilmington - a place where laid-back vibes and sweet Southern charm meet - something she wishes to prominently portray in her artwork.
Story of an Artist
Terry Ganey, Fine Artist
Story of the Art.
A faint echo of history, the depth of an old soul, and the charm of the South - that is what I want as an artist to emphasize in my artwork. With the use of multiple mediums, I love to take the beauty that surrounds me in this area as my subject matter, and create art that will fill you with a longing to be a part of it. Here in NC, I am surrounded by rustic country landscapes, vibrant coastal seascapes, and other places that are steeped in rich history that I adore.
Because of the amount of heart and soul I pour into each detail of the artwork I create, I consider my art a healing meditation for my spirit. Hopefully, it will be the same for you.
