Internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Terry Issac grew up in Williamette Valley of Oregon and it is there that he began his love affair with nature. Drawing inspiration from his own backyard and from the captivating vistas of the West, he began to created dramatic wildlife art.
After gaining a degree in art education Terry was a teacher until a chance meeting with legendary wildlife artist Robert Bateman in the 1980s helped launch his professional career. Since then he has strived to capture "magical moments in nature" that appear with the right lighting, color and atmospheric conditions. He is inpsired by large dramatic panoramas as well as close up views of animal behavior. Although there us plenty to paint around his new home base in British Columbia, he travels widely to seek out those transitory moments
