TERRI FERGASON NEAL
Colored Pencil Artist
Terri has lived throughout the US and finally settled in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She has a keen interest in animals and the natural world and received a biology degree from Hiram College in Ohio.
Having loved to draw and create from an early age, Terri has explored many mediums - pencils, fibers, ceramics and metals. Pencils were her first love and she began exploring them again, even combining them with watercolor and ink. Her realistic style conveys her love of the subject matter and color. Her quest is to find the soul and whimsy in each of her animal subjects.
Terri has received multiple awards for her paintings: Cannon Beach Arts Assoc. Miniature’s show, DC201 Colored Pencil Show in Keizer, Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts and the 2018 Best of Show and Mayor's choice award from Beaverton Arts Mix Juried Show. Terri’s paintings have been selected to be included in the books, Colored Pencil Cats & Dogs from Ann Kullberg and CP Hidden Treasures. Terri’s paintings were also juried into the 25th (2017) and 27th (2019) Annual CPSA International Exhibition at the Mansion at Strathmore in Baltimore, Maryland and Brea Gallery in Brea, California respectively.
