Terry Isaac Biography
Artist Terry Isaac is a native Northwesterner, living in the Willamette
Valley of Oregon between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean.
Isaac paints the wildlife and landscapes of North America. Although Isaac
received a formal art education, graduating with honors, he believes his
best training has come from being outdoors and from studying the work of
his favorite wildlife artists.
Isaac particularly admires the art of 19th century painters Thomas Moran
and Albert Bierstadt, who painted the dramatic light and landscapes of
the west. Isaac, painting predominately in acrylics, strives to capture
not only the characteristics of his wildlife subjects but also the
light that surrounds them. He takes a great deal of care to depict
both his subjects and their habitats with accuracy.
In the last few years, Isaac has placed in 12 stamp design
competitions. He enjoys participating in these state and national
fish and waterfowl stamp and print competitions because they
require high standards of painting technique, design, animal
anatomy and habitat. Isaac feels these competitions have sharpened
his skills and have given him the opportunity to compete with
the nation's finest wildlife artists.
Isaac has been selected to participate in several
important art exhibitions, including the Leigh Yawkey
Woodson Art Museum's prestigious "Birds in Art" exhibitions.
He was also commissioned to produce 14 waterfowl drawings for
the Audubon Bird Handbook, published in 1987.
