Terri Bell
Denver, Colorado
Artist Terri Bell creates geometric abstracts with harmonious colors and intricate patterns. From childhood, she aspired to a creative path and pursued art in college, receiving invaluable mentorship. Her journey took unexpected turns, making a few detours and eventually changing her major to political science. This led her to work in a high-profile state government position for many years. However, Terri's creative spirit remained unwavering. "Art was the balance in my life, and I never gave up my dream," shares Terri. Through hard work and determination, she returned to her calling as a full-time career artist. Terri currently operates from her home studio in Denver, Colorado, which, while slightly cluttered, exudes a cozy charm. When she's not painting, Terri finds pleasure in cooking, container gardening, and spending time with her husband and two Yorkies.

Artist Statement

My creative process is spontaneous and intuitive. I envision abstract simplicity, but my eyes also crave detail, defined boundaries, organization, repetition, contrast, and texture. My work is contemporary in style, but also inspired by nostalgic elements.

I like shapes and textures, so I start a piece by building up layers of paint, paper and found items. It's an intuitive process. I have a general idea of where I'm going with a piece but I like to let the media guide me along. I work with acrylic paints and mediums, found papers, graphite, ink and prisma colors. Some of my work also incorporates pigment transfers from my photography.

When people see my work on a gallery wall, they generally go right up and inspect it close up because at a distance one can't really see all the details in my work. I work on most of my pieces on a flat drafting table, so I am very close to the process and that is something that draws people into my work.
