Terri Kelly Moyers says she cannot recall a time when she wanted to be anything other than an artist. Born September 12, 1953 in Vancouver, she drew animals since she was a child, and she has consistently directed most of her time and energy toward pursuing art.

She is fortunate to have studied with a number of fine artists, including: Robert Lougheed, Ned Jacob, Clarence Tillenius, and William Moyers.

From 1978 to 1982, Moyers made many trips to the Okanagan Game Farm in Pentiction, British Columbia, to paint animals from life. She is convinced that working outdoors is the finest means of growing as a painter. It was there that she met John Moyers in 1979, a fellow artist who is now her husband.

Moyers was among 13 Prix de West Artists participating in an exhibit at the Forbes Galleries in New York in 2004. In 1996 and 2011 she won the Frederick Remington Award for her painting at the Prix De West Show. In 2012 Terri was awarded the Prix De West Purchase Award at the Prix De West Show.

In November 2011 Terri, her husband John and friend Curt Walters participated in a three artist show also at Forbes Galleries. Most recently in November, Terri was inducted into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas.

Moyers’ work is featured at the Nedra Matteucci Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Wood River Fine Art in Ketchum, Idaho, and Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, Arizona.
