Terry Meyer - Local Artist - Exhibit at the Library

Terry Teague Meyer began painting less than 10 years ago when she inherited a large collection of art materials from her mother.  Terry quickly picked acrylics over watercolor and oils, as she finds the medium flexible and user friendly.  

Terry began painting in earnest in 2007, upon her retirement from Klein ISD where she had taught French. She began taking lessons with Stanley Harris at Lone Star College Tomball and has continued studying with Ginger Cook at Jerry’s Artrama.
