“Capturing the vibrant and ever-changing colors of the marsh and sky is a constant challenge,Terry Brennan Painting 2 but one I welcome,” Brennan said. “With each weathered building, landscape and seascape, I strive to achieve a realistic and inspirational image, an image that evokes the emotions and mood of that singular moment in time.”

The self-taught artist is a registered professional engineer with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s in business administration. His love for art, however, is evident throughout his collection of Lowcountry paintings. For more information, visit www.terrybartist.com.
