Jack Terry's maternal grandfather was a rancher and a cowboy who rode on some of the last great cattle drives out West. His paternal grandmother was a painter who vividly captured the people and landmarks of Texas. From his earliest childhood days, Jack Terry found himself immersed in the worlds of both cowboys and canvases. The places he has visited and people he has met inspire many of Jack Terry's paintings. "A lot of my subjects are friends. We go on trail drives and round-ups, which provide the perfect opportunity to take lots of pictures." Today his repertoire includes both Western and cowboy art for which he is best known, as well as landscapes, Victorian images and street scenes.
