Torrents of color stream like sheets of rain over Terri Burris’ moody and atmospheric abstract artworks. Burris studied art and graphic design, then worked for 15 years designing textiles, ceramics and graphic works. Interested in a more spontaneous medium, Burris gravitated to fine art. She is particularly inspired by the drama of weather and its impact upon human feelings. Working intuitively, Burris layers acrylics and crystallized collage elements to create her softly diffused yet emotionally charged abstracts.
