Terri Kelly Moyers
Born 1953 in Vancouver, British Columbia; lives in Monrovia, California
TERRI KELLY MOYERS cannot recall a time when she wanted to be anything other than an artist. She has had a lifelong love of drawing and painting. She is fortunate enough to have studied with a number of fine artists, including Robert Lougheed, Ned Jacob, Clarence Tillenius, and Bob Kuhn. Terri made many trips to the Okanagan Game Farm in Pentiction, British Columbia from 1978 to 1982, to paint animals from life. Her continued dedication to paint from life outdoors has given her the mastery of light and form that she so readily exhibits in her studio work.
In 2012 Terri was the second woman ever to be awarded the Prix de West Purchase Award at the Prix de West Exhibition held at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. In 2015 Terri was inducted into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas, for her extraordinary contribution to western culture. Her work can be found in several galleries, as well as the permanent collections of a number of prominent American art museums.
