Today, I am so pleased to introduce artist Terry Runyan to you. I first discovered Terry's work on Society 6 and was instantly smitten with her cute, quirky style. Then, there's the predominance of funny cats, dogs and other animals, as well as her mellow people and how the animals interact with them. I really enjoy the personality, color palette, texture and line in Terry's work. It is, basically, a symphony of cuteness! Take a little peek, and see for yourself.
Can you tell us of a favorite creative activity you enjoyed as a child?
I enjoyed drawing...mostly horses. Most of my creative time was spent pretending I was a horse. Ha!
What was your first job or position as a creative professional?
I did the illustration for a book while I was still in school. It was published by the writer so she needed a student's help (inexpensive.) Good experience though. Not anything like the work I do now. Probably true for all artists after they leave school! :o)
What is your current favorite medium to work in?
I primarily work digitally. I do enjoy drawing with a pencil. Not much into conventional painting although I love to see other artist's work.
Whistle while you work: Do you enjoy working in silence, listening to music, a podcast, or a movie? Please share!I work in silence mostly with the background purr of my two little kitty companions Rylee and Tucker. They like to hang out on my computer desk in their beds.
