My name is Terri Churchill, and I’m just trying to live an artful life. You can come along if you don’t mind a really messy room. And you’ll probably walk away covered in paint.
I am married to the greatest guy. Seriously. Everyone agrees with me on this.
And my two sons. Oh my. So great. They’re both married to girls that I love. And the grandkids. How did I get so lucky? I have two grandsons who have me wrapped around their little fingers. So there’s that.
I also have a couple of goofy dogs that are in their twilight years so if you catch me yelling at them it’s only because they’re pretty much deaf.
I live in Saint Paul and work from home for a non-profit called ReKnew. I’m their web content editor. And I also serve on the board of another non-profit called Kòt a Kòt. (That’s “side by side” in Haitian Kreyol.) We helped to raise six little girls in Haiti who are now adults looking into post-secondary options.
And then there’s the art.
People generally considered me an artist when I was young, but as I raised my family, art took a back seat. Actually it was tied up in the trunk. Here I am over 50 and coming back to creativity in ways I’ve never experienced before. I’m jumping in with both feet and releasing the prisoner from the trunk. It’s about time.
If you like the art you see here and want to see what’s for sale, you can find me on Etsy. I also have an artist page on Facebook and an Instagram account. I even have a Twitter account. Go ahead. Cyberstalk me.
