Terri Jarrett Rice

I grew up in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. In high school I was awarded a Gold Key and Blue Ribbon in the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards for an etching in aquatint that was then displayed at the Prudential Center in Boston.

I attended college in Kansas where I studied pre-med and took a few art classes in silk screening and pen & ink. Moving to Miami, Florida I took my first watercolor class at University of Miami, a novice in a class of professional artists- a humbling, helpful way to learn.

I began painting in oil in 2015 when my daughter, now married with 5 children dumped her supply of oil paints and brushes on my kitchen counter and told me that I should learn to paint in oils. So, I’m very self taught in oil.

I love the unique qualities of each medium. My goal is to paint with enough realism to portray the moment but abstract enough to invite the viewer to interpret.

I’ve been painting for 35 years and have taught children and adults in private classes and workshops in a range of mediums, including scrimshaw, gyotaku prints, watercolor, acrylic, and drawing.

I’ve sold to art lovers across the country and internationally.
