Terrill”s work is in collections that also include such renown Canadian landscape painters as Emily Carr, A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris.
As an artist, Terrill sold her first oil painting when she was fourteen years old and had two successful solo watercolour art shows in the late 1990′s in Prince George B.C., Canada.
Terrill’s 3rd solo exhibit Sea, Land and Time, Sept 3 – 22, 2010, featured her oil paintings and photography at the Mayne Island Reading Centre (the library).
Terrill’s 2012 solo exhibition of original oil paintings STUDY OF BLUE was held at the Oceanwood Resorton Mayne Island from June 30, 2011 to July 27, 2011. Only four out of fifteen of the paintings in this exhibition remain available.
