Internationally known Alaska artist Terry Pyles moved to Alaska at the age of 18 and is today one of the state's best-known painters of wildlife. Equally skilled in landscape, still life, marine and aviation subjects, Terry finds endless inspiration in the natural world that surrounds him. "The world is my medium," he likes to say, and one look at his breadth of work, suffice it to say, the world he sees is beautiful, indeed.
Terry once lived for an entire year in the remote isolation of the Alaska bush and was also a licensed assistant guide with the State of Alaska. He resides in Ketchikan with his wife, Cheri. He spends his days making art, working on commissions, walking his dog, Cali, and soaking in the beauty of Southeast Alaska.
