Terry's sculpture has been heavily influenced by materials. Recently, photography has sometimes become a major element in her finished work.
Terry has worked with a group of fellow Hertfordshire graduates since completing a fine art degree course in the 1990's, and has been involved in setting up and administrative work for various visual arts events and organisations in the county.
Her sculpture has been heavily influenced by a mix of materials for standing, plinth and wall based work. However, a move to a more urban environment and less space has had a strong influence on her choice of subject matter and ways of working.
Recently, photography, which has always been a useful tool for exploring her subject matter, has sometimes become the major element in the finished work.
