Local Artscapes by Terry J. Marks, Sr.
I was born in 1954 in the Upper Ninth Ward of New Orleans. As a young adult I began noticing that I had some artistic talent. This led me to acquire an associate degree in Advertising Art from Delgado Jr. College.
After college, in 1976, I opened my own sign business with a partner; and we began hand painting signs and displays all around New Orleans for the next 36 years. We are still operating today. However, the sign business changed over the years to a highly computer driven graphic type business.
I found that I missed a brush in my hand; so, in June of 2010, I began painting first with watercolor then acrylics, which I really enjoy. I find that painting is very relaxing and a great way to relieve stress. I really hope you enjoy this sample of some of my work over the past year and a half.
If one of my pieces on display here is sold, please contact me. I have other reprints available. So, please feel free to contact me if you see something that interests you; and I will do my best to help in any way.
I am available for commission painting.
Thank you and may God Bless You.
