Suzette Terry

About me

Suzette Terry, an artist in the South Central Ontario art scene since graduating from the University of Guelph in 1990 with an Honours Degree in Fine Art and Business.

Having spent her early years in the picturesque town of Fergus, eleven in Port Stanley, two in Kitchener, she now resides in Meaford on Nottawassaga Bay.

All of these places have left a mark on her work and her scope of expression. Her subjects range from the human figure to vibrant abstracts, her mediums follow suit, ranging from work both in oil and acrylic, to printmaking and mixed media collages.  It is this shifting of gears from one medium to the next that spurs Suzette to new and innovative discoveries in both technique and content.

Bold form and strong colours are the mark of her style. She has built on her influences: the colours of the Fauves, the abstraction of Picasso, and the simplicity of Matisse.  Her recent trip to Europe with visits to seven major museums and galleries has laid the groundwork for further exciting explorations in her work; including working on large scale canvases. Subject matter ranges from images of sailing, her favorite pastime to beach themes, abstract figurative images of women.

In addition to creating art Suzette has taught many workshops, and lectures around Central and Southern Ontario, encouraging and inspiring other artists.

At the close of 2017 Suzette has had 21 solo exhibitions and participated in numerous juried and group shows.  Her work can be found in private and public collections in Canada, the United States, England, Australia, and China.

Matilda Swanson Gallery, Clarksburg

Karger Gallery, Elora
