Terry Prince

Terry Prince is an award-winning artist working in Oratia in West Auckland. Using acrylic on canvas as his medium, Terry creates landscape pieces that talk to the unique environment of the west coast. His subject matter stems from growing up and living in these very landscapes.

As a young child, Terry explored Huia and as he became old enough to roam, the big surf beaches of the west coast drew him in. He finds the grand scale, shapes and endless colour shifts of these places fascinating and derives great joy in trying to capture them and the atmosphere they evoke in his paintings.

Terry was artist in residence on an Antarctic expedition and has had seven solo exhibitions. His work can be found in collections in nine countries.

Terry will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
