About Terry Phillips

Terry Phillips Terry's peaceful art studio nestles in her productive fruit and vegetable garden at the base of mossy bluffs. She is driven by curiosity and experimentation, trying to bridge the gap between painting and fibre art, hoping to express the west coast landscape in her unique way.

Working with fabrics is the most challenging and satisfying way to create an image. I love exploring its boundaries; adding textural, sculptural, hand-dyed, hand-painted, and embellished elements. Nothing makes my day better, unless it is doing the same, with friends. I have been inspired by the breathtaking fibre art of Annemeike Mein, by the European Post-Impressionist artists, and by Canadian artists; the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, Tom Thompson, and Bruno Cote. I also paint in watercolour and experiment with oils and acrylics.

I hung my first art quilt in about 1992; a queen size image of the Grand Canyon! Yikes. Currently I am a member of the online Cyber Fibres Journal Group, meeting and presenting much smaller textile arts to one another since 2008. My work is hung every two years at the Quadra Island Quilt and Garden Tour. I sometimes open my studio during the Quadra Island Studio Tour in June, or by appointment at 250-285-3040 at any time.
