Terry Gay Puckett

Following the Muse




 As a seeker and a dreamer, the art muse has been with me since childhood   Following my heart, it became my career path, as an artist and a professor of art. My work is fueled by indefatigable curiosity, spirituality, meditation and travel.  It is distinguishable by an emotional approach to color and design.  I want to  share my everyday observations about life through art media. I am interested in art as a universal language, and telling visual stories with symbols and shapes.  Artists see the world differently, and it is fun to share my point of view.

Terry Gay Puckett Born in Amarillo, Terry Gay works in her studio at home in San Antonio, Texas producing paintings and enamel work.  She is honored to have been chosen as  Artist of the Year 2009 at the San Antonio Art League and Museum, and was the 63rd artist to be selected. In December 2009 her work was in Glass on Metal Magazine, and a piece of her enameling work is in the collection of the Thompson Enamel Inc.in Bellevue, Kentucky as of January 2010.
