Fair Oaks, California
"After seeing many paintings coming out of this event done by some of my the most talented plein air painters working today, I just had to be a part of it. I’m particularly drawn to the subject matters that are full of character and old Florida charm, like the fishing boats and wooden structures, not to mention the humid coastal air that creates a unique light and atmosphere. I can’t wait to get painting!"
After graduating from Art Center College of Design in 1990, Terry Miura headed out to New York City to pay his dues. He began his career as a freelance illustrator, creating imagery for such clients as Time, Newsweek, Rollingstone, and Sports Illustrated, to name a few.
In between illustration assignments he painted and exhibited oil paintings, and continued his transition to becoming a full time painter after returning to the West Coast in 1996.
Miura’s evocative tonalist landscapes explore the relationship between memory, emotions, and identity. Out in the field, Miura paints en plein air to collect visual information. Back in the studio, these sketches are used as jumping off points for further exploration and development of larger studio works.
Miura’s works are represented by The Christopher Hill Gallery in St. Helena, Sekula’s Fine Art in Sacramento, Sloane Merrill Gallery in Boston, Holton Studio in Emeryville, Ca, and Waterhouse Gallery in Santa Barbara.
