Terry Swann is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary landscape watercolourists. She has been working as a professional artist for over 30 years.

 

She has held over 20 solo exhibitions in Sydney and Brisbane and held her first Melbourne exhibition in 2015.

 

Born in Sydney, Swann had her first solo exhibition in 1978 at Sydney’s Holdsworth Galleries who exhibited her work for over 18 years.

 

She moved to the Yarrabah Aboriginal Community, Far North Queensland in 1988 and to South East Queensland in 1990. In 2005 she moved to Melbourne.

 

Her work has taken her around the world, but it is the remote Australian landscape that captivates her. 

 

Each winter Swann travels through remote areas of Australia working on location in all weather conditions. Her work explores these varied landscapes expressed in her unique, spontaneous style.

 

Her work is held in numerous private and public collections including the State Library of Brisbane, State Parliament House of Queensland and Federal Parliament Offices, Brisbane.
