Terry Isaac

Internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Terry Isaac draws inspiration from his own backyard and from the captivating vistas of the Northwest, where he began to create dramatic wildlife art. A professional artist for thirty years, Isaac is known for his attention to detail and the magical moments created by the dramatic light nature provides.

Isaac lives in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. He travels the world to capture exciting images, but his main painting focus continues to be on North American birds and mammals.

Since the mid-1980s, he has created realistic wildlife art with a focus on particularity and dramatic light. Isaac created the art for a dinosaur in a Disney movie called Dinosaur, has written an art instruction book that has sold out twice, works with Ducks Unlimited on an ongoing basis, and sells original art in several museums and galleries. Isaac has won numerous international art competitions and teaches workshops both in Penticton and around North America.

I draw my inspiration from observing nature, always on the lookout for “magical moments.”  I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do something I have such a passion and love for.
