Terry is a collage artist working often with his own photographic images, along with found objects and ephemera. His collages are done both on paper and stretched canvas and in journals and often include imagery from the natural world. Terry also makes one-of-a-kind artist books, using his collages. His concern with the human impact on the natural environment is a frequent subject choice as is his exploration of the concept of home and story telling. Terry has exhibited his collage work across the country. His work has appeared in five books and several magazines, and is represented in private collections in the U.S. and abroad. Terry was an assistant professor in the visual arts department at Bemidji State University in Bemidji, Minnesota and previously he taught art in the public schools in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. Terry has also taught collage and visual journaling classes at the Minnesota Center for the Book Arts in Minneapolis and at ArtFest, an annual art retreat in Port Townsend, Washington.
