"To be an artist, is to dream the unknown." Terry d. Chacon
Terry is from Redlands, California and a national award-winning artist. Terry's artwork is in private collections in over 20 countries. She continues to sculpt in ceramic and bronze, designs jewelry in precious metal and paints commission pet portraits in her studio.
She began her love for art as a young girl working in ceramics with her mother who also loved creating art. Art has always been a part of Terry’s life. As a breeder of top winning Afghan Hounds for over 40 years, her dogs have been her inspiration in her paintings and her sculptures. She interjects whimsical qualities in her artwork, capturing the spirit and the almost human like qualities of her animals in real life situations.
Terry is an avid plein air artist. Fascinated with impressionistic style paintings like those of Monet, she sought to learn a style of painting that would enhance her abilities by adding color and light to her subjects not only in her studio but on location as well. Capturing the light is the most important part of her paintings. "Painting in plein air has given me a new way to see light on my subjects and capture it in my paintings. The challenge is to capture it quickly, as it doesn't wait for you."

Mission Statement: My exciting life in the world of dog shows has given me the opportunity to travel the world. My other passion is painting and I am never without brushes, paint, palette, and canvas. Painting spectacular views of many places I have been are beautiful reminders of my travels and treasures to those who have them in their collections. Terry d. Chacon
