There never was a time when Terri Kelly Moyers did not want to be an artist. Animals were her favorite subjects when she was a child growing up in Canada’s rich ranchland region. Later the art of legendary wildlife painter Carl Runigus influenced her. From 1978 to 1982, she spent part of every year at the Okanagan Game Farm in British Columbia, painting animals from life.
While preparing to become a professional painter, Moyers studied with legendary Western painters Robert Lougheed, Kenneth Riley, Bob Kuhn, Howard Terpning, Ned Jacob and William Moyers, the cowboy artist who became her father-in-law.
An ardent plein air painter, Moyers enjoys a challenge of interpreting constantly changing light and atmosphere and the sense of renewal she feels when working outdoors. When she is not painting landscapes, she enjoys portraying Western women, whom she feels deserve greater recognition for their major roles in shaping the West.
