Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Terry Burns lived in the Toronto area for two decades before moving to Owen Sound in 2003. She works in a variety of media, including pastel, watercolour, acrylic on canvas and mylar, ink, encaustic, cold wax, and photography, and finds inspiration for her visual art in the natural world. Scenes from all over Ontario appear in her work, and she has exhibited throughout Grey and Bruce counties. Apart from painting, her career has included theatrical stage management, arts administration, theatrical scenic painting (which she still does with Owen Sound Little Theatre), radio announcing, photography, retail, office work, writing and editing. Terry was the Poet Laureate of Owen Sound (2013-2015), and in this capacity edited a poetry anthology, Mix Well (Ginger Press, 2015) featuring the work of many local poets. She has published two volumes of poetry, the quality of light (Ginger Press, 2015)and Twelve Days: A Bestiary (self-published chapbook, 2017), for which she also did the illustrations. She lives just south-east of Chatsworth, ON.
