Terry Isaac

Internationally acclaimed wildlife artist, Terry Isaac, grew up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, and it is there that he began his love affair with wildlife. Drawing inspiration from his own backyard and from the captivating vistas of the Northwest, he began to create dramatic wildlife art.

He now calls Penticton, British Columbia, Canada “home” and, since moving, has continued to create paintings capturing unique characteristics of wildlife and their habitat. Terry travels around the world to capture exciting images, but his main painting focus continues to be on North American birds and mammals.

Terry’s formal art began with an interest in animation and drawing cartoons. After art college, he was interested in children’s book illustration but soon re-discovered his childhood passion for wildlife. Since the mid 1980’s, he has created realistic wildlife art with a focus on particularity and dramatic light. He is inspired by large panoramas as well as close-up views, and by subjects ranging from whales to hummingbirds.

During his successful professional career Terry has been the featured “Artist of the Year” at a number of prestigious art shows/expos, placed in 12 stamp and print competitions, been commissioned to create for the Audubon Society handbooks and hired to develop the main character in a Walt Disney production.

Terry is an accomplished teacher, and his approach to painting is outlined in his own book Painting the Drama of Wildlife, Step by Step now in its second edition (North Light Books, 1998). The book’s success led to the creation of a DVD, Painting Wildlife in Acrylic (Creative Catalyst, 2005). Terry’s art has also been featured in several other books, “Painting Birds Step by Step” (cover/North Light Books, 1996), “The Best of Wildlife Art” (cover/North Light Books, 1997), and “More Wildlife Painting Techniques of Modern Masters” (Watson-Guptill Publications, 1996).

Demand for Terry’s originals has remained high, partly due to the fact that his technique of painting and the detail he captures means that he paints relatively few paintings per year. Terry’s work was published by Mill Pond Press for almost 20 years, and many of his limited edition prints are sold out. Terry is now a self-published artist, who strives to create works of art for the discerning collector and only prints a select number of his paintings with very small edition sizes.

The design of the picket fence at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery came from one of Terry’s paintings over 15 years ago. The start of a great painting connection has come full circle with Terry Isaac’s inclusion in the group of fine artists at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery in historic Fort Langley.
