Terry Preston

Wildlife Drawing With Detail

Terry Preston was born and raised in San Leandro, California and now resides in Castro Valley, California.  Her passion for nature and animals began at a very early age.  After retiring from her job as a wildlife biologist and researcher she turned her interest to drawing and painting animals she studied throughout her life.  Her job gave her insight and close contact to many species of wildlife from large black bears to hummingbirds, the smallest of bird species.

 

She works primarily in graphite, colored pencil, watercolor and pen.  

She completed the Botanical Illustration Program at Cornell University, New York, Biological Illustration at California State University, Hayward and has exhibited at many San Francisco Bay Area galleries.  

 

Her primary goal is to represent nature and wildlife in great detail with a special focus on the threatened and endangered species that the earth is at risk of losing from climate change and habitat loss.  Terry’s hope for all who view her work is the realization of the extreme vulnerability of so many wildlife species.  She also hopes that through education we can all learn and participate in bringing these species back to healthy populations.

 

All of the art works exhibited here are available as unframed Giclee Prints.  Framed Giclee prints are also available as arranged.  Giclee prints are the highest quality of prints available for fine arts.  They are created with a high resolution camera using pigments, not dyes, and are printed on heavy rag archival watercolor paper.  They do not degrade like other prints.
