Terri K. Stewart’s Artist Statement

I have started a new series on space and all meanings of what ‘space’ is: outer space, inner space, small or large spaces, microscopic, space between our ears, etc. I will continue to revisit other themes and explore other types of images, not necessarily as part of any theme but simply for the fun of it and because I can.

Probe This is the image of the Juno Orbiter currently circling the planet Jupiter and sending back telemetry to Earth in real-time. This is the first piece in the ‘space’ series. The Mermaids of Weeki Wachee is a gift to my British friends for hosting me in their home for a week. We like to exchange local cultural information and places with each other. Weeki Wachee is a Florida attraction that holds fond memories as a child, and some of my grandchildren have now visited it.

Terri K. Stewart’s Artist Biography

Terri Stewart started weaving tapestries in 1993 after spending many years in other artistic interests. She has owned a weaving shop, co-founded the Tapestry Artists Of Sarasota (T.A.O.S.), and has been teaching online as a mentor with ATA for over 20 years. She also teaches publicly and privately.  Although her main style of imagery is realism, the imagery is all over the map. She likes working in different themes to keep the work interesting and fresh and to challenge and grow as a weaver. There is always a technique to try, new yarn combinations to play with and more ideas for designs than she will have time to weave.
