Jack Terry's maternal grandfather was a rancher and a cowboy who rode on some of the last great cattle drives out West. His paternal grandmother was a painter who vividly captured the people and landmarks of Texas. From his earliest childhood days, Jack Terry found himself immersed in the worlds of both cowboys and canvases. The places he has visited and people he has met inspire many of Jack Terry's paintings. "A lot of my subjects are friends. We go on trail drives and round-ups, which provide the perfect opportunity to take lots of pictures." Today his repertoire includes both Western and cowboy art for which he is best known, as well as landscapes, Victorian images and street scenes.
The work of Paul Landry will brighten any room. His romantic images of flower-filled seaside gardens, cozy cottages, and ocean shores, are like fresh breezes in your home.
Landry, the grandson of two sea captions, was born on the coast of Canada, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the coast has been a lifelong inspiration. He made his home in Connecticut, taught at Westport’s Famous Artists School and wrote the popular textbook "On Drawing and Painting." His second book, "The Captain’s Garden," was published to unanimous praise in 1996. His third book, "At the Heart of Christmas," is a popular gift book.
