Terry McFarland

My name is Terry McFarland. I reside in Rogers, Minnesota. I have loved doing some form of art since I was a little girl growing up in Minnetonka, Minnesota. I am not formally trained, but have taken classes through the University of Minnesota, adult education programs, the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, the Schroeder Studio in Elk River, and the Elk River Arts Alliance. I have also studied plein air painting under the guidance of Lorenzo Chavez. I am currently a member of the Minnetonka Center for the Arts and the Elk River Arts Alliance.

I enjoy painting with acrylic, watercolor and oil. I also work quite a bit in colored pencil. I enjoy photography.

I have participated in juried exhibits at the Elk River Arts Alliance, Minnetonka Center for the Arts, Plymouth Fine Arts Council Primavera, and the international Arts in Harmony show in Sherburne County. This year I was selected to exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts show. I have received a People Choice Award and Best of Show Award.

I plan to continue to be a student of the arts because there is so much more for me to learn. I see no finish line in sight.

A quote I have posted in my art room is: 

"All raise the song of praise to creation - you are the voice."

-David Haas

That helps to keep me moving toward the finish line.
