Terry Strickland holds a BFA in graphic design from the University of Central Florida.
Strickland worked at various times as an illustrator, silk screen artist, courtroom sketch artist, and teacher, before she became a full-time painter.
She paints myths for modern-day situations, inspired by superheroes and fairy tales. Strickland regards Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel represent ‘survivors of perils and predators in life’. Likewise, Superman is ‘a symbol for the aspirations each of us hold in our chests’.
Her client list includes Sea World, Busch Gardens, Greenpeace, Kennedy Space Center, Birmingham Museum of Art, Brevard Community College, and Avalanche Press.
"Her skill level is very consistent in each painting but the subject matter and meaningful thought she puts into every painting its what sets her apart as a artist. The more you dive into each painting the more you want to discover."
