Watercolor is my first love, my first art experience. Since picking up a watercolor brush at the beckoning of my grandmother; I have tried diligently to study and master the art of painting with this medium. After years of painting with watercolors, I still know there is much to learn.
I taught Art for 15 years in two small secondary schools in Texas. Teaching allowed me to be exposed to many other art media. I became very interested and excited about photography, colored pencil, and jewelry-making also. The challenges and newness of the different media inspire me daily. The last few years I have traveled and been blessed with experiencing life in Texas, Hawaii, Oregon, and Thailand. I enjoy creating art work from the beauty that surrounds me. You should see all the photographs I have taken!
In addition to creating artwork, I also enjoy writing. I have three blogs. The first is My Creativity Blog, http://mycreativityblog.com, where I share my thoughts on creativity and the artistic process. The second is Art For Homeschool, http://www.artforhomeschool.com, which is a website devoted to helping parents give their children art instruction through various ways. I share my insight through articles about art education. The site also has a membership portion with video art lessons I wrote, filmed, and produced.
In addition to my creative, artsy side; I am also a real estate broker, licensed in Oregon and Hawaii. If you are interested in purchasing or selling property in Central Oregon, you can go to my website, www.terrygiltner.com.
So, you can call me an artist, art teacher, filmmaker, writer, patron of the arts, mother, grandmother, and real estate broker. I guess you could say I am a creative person with many interests. I thank God daily for all the creative blessings he has given me. I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Please come back often.
