Terry spent most of her adult life bringing up a family and began drawing when her children left home at the age of 47. Art was always an interest though, she produced some acrylic paintings and an interesting sculpture of a fist carved from a piece of sandstone. She enjoyed arts and crafts helping out at her local primary school and helped decorate the sets and programs for the local Drama Group.
Although her focus is with her art work, in 2002 she had a short poem called "Senses"1 published in a book called "Of Laughter and Forgetting".
Terry first entered the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize in May 2008 with a piece called "Happy Endings" (see below) .4 This was a finalist in the section "Works on Paper" and judged "Highly Commended". The piece was then taken to Canberra where it was exhibited in the National Archives of Australia along with the other prize winning entries. She was also a finalist in 20105 where her piece "Not So Different" (see below) was used in advertising material.
In 2011, her piece called "Small Parts - Big Picture" was again judged Highly Commended.6 This piece is a collection of detailed drawings of parts of an elephant arranged to be perceived as the whole animal. Although the majority of the collection uses graphite as in her earlier works, Terry used coloured pencil in the central piece to bring the collection to life.
In August 2009, she held an exhibition of more than 30 art works as a part of the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA) Festival at the Old Adelaide Gaol. In August 2010 she again took part in the SALA festival exhibiting this time in the Santos Conservation Centre at the Adelaide Zoo.
One of her earlier works "Tusk" was the subject of a critique by Eric Tilden7 in August 2009.
The Australian art magazine "Artists Palette"8 featured Terry's work in issue 91 (October 2010) including a demonstration of how she produced her work "Group Hug". The article noted "Very few artists are capable of exploiting the potential of pencils with as much creative flair and unmitigated skill as this talented South Australian"9
In September 2012, Terry was chosen as the Feature Artist for an episode of Colour In Your Life10 broadcast on the free-to-air channel TV4ME in Australia.
