Welcome to my 3rd "Welcome to NEWBIE" weekly feature. Each Wednesday, I will introduce you to some NEW, or as I like to call us, NEWBIE, bloggers who are fun, creative and just plain COOL!
You, my peeps, get some new inspiration and the NEWBIE gets some new followers! A win-win for all!
Today I'm stepping away from the decorating blogs I usually feature, to introduce you to a super talented new friend.
Meet Terri Smith, artist extraordinaire!
Terri has a wonderful blog that chronicles her work, called Dimples & Dragonflies.
I met Terri after she responded to my post about Etsy. One look at her work and I was in love!
See what I mean? Her work just makes me smile! Terri is not afraid to use bold, happy colors and her pieces have a modern vibe while still being warm and friendly.
Terri often uses children as her subject and she captures their expressions so beautifully!
So here's a little more about Terri...
Terri has been a working artist for the past 7 years, and lives in Bonaire, Georgia. She has studied Figurative Expressionism, Portraiture and Studio Drawing. Terri is influenced by artists Modigliani and Vincent Van Gogh.
Terri also experiments with other mediums. Check out this Venetian Plaster piece she made...
Oh how I would love to see that piece. I can just imagine all the beautiful textures!
I've been visiting with Terri a lot recently and in addition to being uber talented, she's just as sweet as can be!
You'll notice that Terri signs her work, "R. Hill". She does this in memory of her maternal grandmother, Reeder Hill. Isn't that a beautiful tribute?
So I have something VERY EXCITING to tell you!
