Terry Van Cleave had an early interest and talent in art. He sold his first painting in high school.
After retiring in 2019, Terry has the time to fully commit to his art. With no formal training except for high school art classes, Terry considers each work an experiment and learning process.
Terry's work is mostly realistic impressionism, with the subject matter leaning toward the American West and Western genre. He appreciates the beauty of the Southwest and Rocky Mountains, which are often reflected in his artwork.
Some of Terry's influences are Howard Terpning, James Bama, Tim Cox, and Greg Larson (creator of The Far Side!).
