An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Terri Brooks.

Terri Brooks lives in Melbourne, Australia.

“By favoring the common materials of house paint and pencils and employing techniques focused on weathering and found marks, Brooks creates rich, physical surfaces that address contemporary landscape abstraction’ Dion Johnson, 2011.”
