Ahh, Spring is around the corner...really it is!
There's always something surprising yet so hopeful when I see the Snowdrops in my garden braving their first blooms in the snow! Then the cranes and robins start their return and I'm convinced...
Lots of time in the studios this Fall and Winter creating new work that comes from being present to life. I'm so looking forward to sharing and seeing many of you this season!

Nov 14, 2022 Update -So happy to receive 2022 Artful Women Honorable Mention Award for my painting “The Party Is Starting”.
Comments by Juror Helen Klebesadel:
I imagined that this artwork could only have been created through a deeply process oriented celebration of the act of painting with texture, color, brushwork, and mark-making as the artist’s tools. She seems to explore the act of painting with curiosity, intuition, and courage as her guides. The layered mark-making edited into dynamic shapes contains the energy of the painter’s journey into discovery, and it convinced me, as the viewer, that the party truly is starting, and I want to stay there and play too.
Some Reviews of my Work From Past Exhibits:
"..Terri Beck-Engel is in the business of manufacturing jewels in the guise of small abstract moments. There is a lithe, confident, and almost secretive allusion to pictorial subject that is referenced but never explicitly revealed in her small square offerings. Whispers of DeKooning, Hoffmann, and perhaps Joan Mitchell inform her sensibility with a playfulness and authority not often seen in contemporary abstraction." Chris Gargan
"The artwork is rich in surface, gesture, and textures that move your eye around the picture plan in a satisfying journey. Some of the shapes seem almost nature-like, others are made by scrafrito scratches in the surface revealing mysterious possibilities in the colors underneath. Marks are made with courage and confidence, that create a complexity in the contrast of color, shapes and surface that seem to imply a narrative that I may discover if I stay with it long enough. It is an artwork that draws you to it again and again." (Award comments from Juror and Artist Helen Klebesadel)
