The Artist As Pink Buddha
“I have found a great comfort not fitting in. Even growing up, I was always outside looking in... It’s much safer and friendlier out here in the wilderness.”
Terri Lloyd is a San Francisco Bay Area transplant who has called Los Angeles home since 1980.
Under the influence of a Sixties latch-key-kid youth, the circumstances of a working class life did not provide the conventional means to an art education or experience.
“It has been challenging, but I refuse to let the institutions get in the way of my education. Knowledge is now available at our fingertips. There is no excuse for ignorance. Ignorance has become a choice.”
Introduced to the Apple computer in the 1980s, a career in graphic arts was born.
At the age of 50 she retired the commercial arts aspect of her career path to pursue a lifelong interest of fine arts.
Terri lives in Los Angeles living with a very patient husband, some cats and a very noisy macaw.
