"Find something you love"

...If you know Terry, you know how easy it is to become friendly with him.  I had always admired his art as he showed me photos and talked about what he was working on... The Sunset Surfer was one piece that spoke to me.  While I don't surf, I do enjoy the beach.   I live in Huntington Beach "Surf City" and know, all too well, how difficult it is to get a bit of leisure time to do what one loves.  This sculpture is a beautiful tribute to a woman's strength and determination to grab life whenever she can.  When I look at Sunset Surfer it gives comfort to my heart and my mind.  ... it transports me to the ocean.

Mom's Timeout

Dear Terry,

I knew I had to have this sculpture, it represents what I love to do as well as what I need to do “Moms Timeout”.  Each day as I pass this piece I am reminded to slow down, take a little time to myself, read a book or just kick my shoes off and relax! Thank you so much for this piece of joy and solitude.

The Golfer

   "Relaxed focus"

Golf is a game that requires a tremendous amount of physical skill, discipline, determination, focus and passion. Passionate golfers seem to always be thinking about golf… Good golfers even plan and “see the shot” in their mind before they make it a reality! 

Terry approaches his art in much the same manner a golfer approaches the game of golf. 

Thoughtful, disciplined and passionate about the “stories “ he is able to shape and share through his amazing works of art. 

When I first saw “The Golfer”, my immediate response was that Terry had precisely capture my husband’s facial features, anatomy and golf swing… 

I realized that Terry had done far more than merely capture Larry’s anatomy and physical presence. “The Golfer” captured Larry’s spirit. This beautiful work of art tells the story of my husband’s competitive nature, the focus and determination he demonstrates in all aspects of life, and his passion for life and the game he loves.

God's Gift

 Dear Grandpa,
Stephen and I are very thankful for the sculpture you created of our Brooks. You were able to so accurately capture and depict his young face in a way that brings us back to that special time in his life each and every time we look at it. We are very pleased to have a lasting memento that reminds us so fondly of those early days.
Stephen and Megan
