Teri Ledyard

Teri Ledyard was born in 1963 in Cleveland, Ohio. As a child she was influenced by her father who painted in oils and charcoal. She was an honor student in art while in high school, until an accident where her hand went thru a window severing her wrist. To this day has left her with no feeling in her first three digits of her right hand. With hard work and perseverance she has overcome the loss of feeling and can create beautiful works of art in her true to life style. With the untimely death of her Father at a young age and a move to California shortly thereafter with her Mother and two siblings funding was not available for any formal education. She is self taught and influenced by great artists such as Alfonse Mucha and Olivia De Berardinas. Her love for painting the human form in acrylics has led her to being the portrait artist she is today which has evolved into her own style of photo realism. Teri’s first art showing was in 2006 in the Los Angeles Art District. Encouraged by her friend and fellow artist where she was well received among the diversity of other artists. She currently resides in downtown San Pedro near the many galleries and artist lofts where she has found greater inspiration to paint. You can find her at the Farmers Market socializing with fellow artist while she does one of her many numerous talents henna tattooing. Art Is….. “Creative use of the hands from the mind’s eye for all to see…. Using the right side of the brain is a limitless gift to be shared with all… It’s the spirit of one’s self reaching out for expression…what you perceive to be aesthetic.”
