About Terry Isaac

Originally from Oregon, internationally-renowned visual artist Terry Isaac continues to feel a sense of wonder and inspiration when observing the natural world.  His finely-detailed depictions of birds and animals in their natural environment are simultaneously realistic and magical.  His work is in public, private, and corporate collections around the world.  Limited-edition prints of his work often sell out, as he is very selective about the images he reproduces, and the edition sizes are small.  Isaac currently lives in Penticton, BC.   www.terryisaacsart.com
