Biography 
Terri Hallman was born on August 10 th 1962 in a small town in Wisconsin. She is the youngest of four children. Terri attended Junior College in Hibbing Minnesota and also attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design from 1986-1991 where she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Design. She worked in the field of Design from 1987-1993 where she earned two awards for International Packaging Design.

Artists Technique
The technique that Terri employs is dry pigment on paper, adding a clear acrylic spray which sets the pigment in place. Multiple layers are built up and masked off in different areas with various tapes and hand pressed into the paper. No brushes are used. She then scrapes away some of the pigment to reveal previous layers and all tape is removed. This is a very quick process that she likens to handwriting.fast and expressive!

At this point, if the piece is not flowing in the direction she hoped, she proceeds to a more labor-intensive process. She begins to continuously build up the areas that are lacking, using acrylic mediums and employing the aforementioned masking-off and tearing away technique until the piece finds itself. Very thin washes of color are then blended on top of the layers where, eventually, she will use a combination of oil mixed with dry pigment on the top surfaces until the piece has been fine tuned and has reached maturity. The weight of each piece is often indicative of how long it took to create and it is not uncommon for a piece to take up to one year to complete.

Artist Statement
Terri thinks of each of her pieces as being in a state of constant movement and transformation, from a few abstract lines to layers and layers of color saturation. She feels that the layers represent "the way things were", and are built up to represent "the way things are", like scarring or years passing in each character or "story" she does.
