Terry Evans was born in 1943 in Romford, Essex. Terry started painting for self-satisfaction, his subjects were portraits, racing-cars and dogs. He experimented with water-colour and acrylics and then tried oils. Terry Evans attended art school at Hornsea but his unique and distinctive style was inspired by the renowned artist, Charles Lefar.But Terry has taken the approach further and developed it into a style uniquely his own. A "Terry Evans" is much more detailed, and crisper in technique, than his mentor's work. Not only does he wield his palette knife with aplomb but he also adds fine subtle touches with a thin long-haired sable. Terry generously loads the canvas with oil paint, lavishly applied with gusto. The canvasses groan under the weight of his impasto sculptureed landscapes. The paintings tell of a wilderness with running water, glades, rocks, pools, mountains, trees and flowers. Terry Evans lives on the South Coast and paints every day at his easel.
