Terri Einer is a Contemporary Impressionist creating deliciously bold, colorful renditions of still life, flowers, critters and landscapes in a few happy strokes. Terri’s quirky, loose lines, together with her carefree pen squiggles, create scenes that truly comes to life.
Born amongst the rolling “Coulees” of La Crosse, WI, she relocated to Oshkosh, WI in the fall of 2013. There in a new town, Terri found time to renew her passion for art and launched her business: Einer Arts. Primarily working in acrylics, she has been known to sketch out an impromptu caricature and has recently been dabbling in pastels.
Terri was always artistic taking every possible art class her school had to offer and then continuing on to earn a Graphics Art Degree. Her current style, very loose and colorful, is completely self-taught. She loves to paint very fast, completing most pieces in approximately 1 hour.
Terri was featured in an October 2015 Artsy Shark article, “Color and Whimsy”, as well as being the featured artist with Empty Easel in February of 2015.
Serving as Program Coordinator for the Oshkosh Fine Arts Association helped her meet new people in Oshkosh and to develop new friendships. At Studio 3 in Oshkosh, she shows and sells her art and teaches canvas painting classes.
The main goal in her creations is simple, to bring a smile. One of her paintings, “Hurry Home” was recently purchased to hang in an Arizona Cancer Center and to spread a little joy to its patients. Terri says that is her reward. “When I see people walk up to my paintings and watch the smiles that light up their faces, it makes my day.”
