Terri Ritter

TERRI RITTER, Artist and Art Teacher. Terri (O’Brien)Ritter was born in Charleston, SC, but at the age 4 moved with her parents and two brothers to Sarasota, FL. Growing up in Sarasota allowed her to not only study art all the way from elementary school through high school but to also be part of the magnificent art in and around town. With John Ringling Art Museum and the John Ringling School of Art in her backyard so to say, she was exposed to the wonderful world of art. At age 21 Terri left Florida to begin a 30 year career as a Flight Attendant with United Airlines. With all of her travels she had the great opportunity to see works of art all over the world. At age 30 she went back and finished her college degrees in Public Communications and Political Science. It wasn’t until she was in her late 50’s that she returned to her great love of Art. The two art forms that she loves are being on stage and painting. She has been fortunate to be on stage acting and singing in plays at the Cumberland County Playhouse and other theaters around middle Tennessee. And of course painting. Terri primarily paints in Alcohol Inks and Acrylics. As an accomplished artist she loves learning new methods and techniques. She also loves to teach painting to young and old alike. She is always willing to invite to her studio those who want to try their hand at art. Terri will be teaching a class in beginning Acrylic Pouring at the Cookeville Art Studio & Gallery on September 22nd at 6pm. Also a beginning Alcohol Ink Painting class on September 29th at 6pm. All of the works of art shown here are either Alcohol Ink or Acrylic Pours. As you can she loves vibrant colors.
