Terry Cooke Hall spent a large part of her childhood on trips throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California in the family station wagon, forming strong memories of the Southwest in the 60s. During the mid-70s, Terry’s passion for art led her to numerous classes, workshops, and university extension courses in graphic design and illustration, including studies of the works of the Golden Age illustrators, a heavy influence on her current style. In 1978, Terry put her training into use by illustrating for land development firms in Southern California. After 15 years of the left-brain world of architects and engineers, Terry left her job and co-founded a commercial art business in San Diego County.
Since 2006, Terry has focused exclusively on developing a fine art career that has strong roots in California Impressionism. She has studied under nationally-known artists with an intense focus on foundational principles of fine art and impressionistic light and color.
Terry Cooke Hall’s figures in realism are set in an imaginary world of colorful winds or swirling skies, often backlit by an abstraction of the sun or moon. Her approach blends color, patterns, and textural elements, providing a unique contemporary twist. Her style is a look at her West viewed through the lens of 30 years of work in design and illustration.
Terry lives in Bozeman, Montana and is currently represented by Tierney Fine Art, Bozeman MT; Mountain Trails Galleries, Jackson Hole WY and Park City UT; Lovetts Gallery, Tulsa OK; and Dick Idol Signature Gallery, Whitefish MT.
