INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED wildlife artist Terry Isaac draws inspiration from his own backyard, and from the captivating vistas of the Northwest where he began to create dramatic wildlife art.  A professional artist for over thirty years, Terry’s realistic wildlife art is known for his attention to detail and the magical moments created by the dramatic light nature provides.

Terry lives in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada and continues to create paintings capturing the unique characteristics of wildlife and their habitats. Terry travels around the world to capture exciting images, but his main painting focus continues to be on North American birds and mammals. More recently, Terry’s painting of a bison, Winter Warrior, was featured on the Jan/Feb 2018 cover of The Saturday Evening Post.
