TERRY ISAAC, New Works
Gallery 421, Kelowna
By Jill Sawyer
Recently relocated from Oregon to Penticton, popular wildlife artist Terry Isaac has been inspired by the wild things he’s found in his new backyard. Featured at Gallery 421 in Kelowna, Isaac is a student of Robert Bateman and has tracked and studied wildlife all over the world. His intricate portraits of animals in their natural habitat have led to a thriving practice in prints, originals, and illustration, and as a teacher — he has published a series of popular books and DVDs on painting technique. Isaac is a particularly skilled painter of birds, capturing their difficult and delicate feather patterns in an almost photo-realistic detail. His new subjects, now that he’s made the move to the Okanagan, include birds and waterfowl indigenous to the region’s lakes, and he’s well-known in the area for his popular painting workshops.
