Terri Gordon is a native of Washington state and lives in the Pacific Northwest. Her interest in painting started in the early 1980’s. Most of her childhood weekends were spent on her grandparents farm in Redmond, Washington, riding her horses and exploring the countryside. Her great-grandparents emigrated from Norway and built a beautiful Norwegian-inspired barn that she spent hours playing in. This barn and the outbuildings on the property became the subject of her early oil paintings.
