About me

My name is Terri Walker Pullen and I am a visual artist local to the Raleigh, North Carolina area. I have been illustrating all of my life starting with drawing comic book stories as a child.  Some of my favorite art mediums are acrylics, watercolors, pastels, pen & inks, and color pencils. I enjoy creating figurative artworks best, because of the stories to which art buyers can relate. 

My most current works of art include several paintings installed in art galleries at the Wake Forest Baptist University Health Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I have also displayed paintings at the READ WRITE SPELL fund raiser art show held in November 2021, also in Winston-Salem. Other paintings such as my oversized 3' x 4' acrylic, titled Historic Caboose, was one of the paintings installed for the Art Around Town project in Garner, NC. This event called for many local artist selections and was for the residents of Garner. The event operated from August through November 2021. My artwork, Historic Caboose, was a silent auction winner and was purchased by the Garner Historic Depot Museum.

In previous 2020 art shows, I also exhibited watercolor and acrylic paintings at the Garner Performing Arts Center (GPAC), Garner, NC in honor of Black History month. The name of the art show was Black History Month 2020 Visions Past and Present curated by Visual Artist, LeGrant Taylor. The art show was televised and YouTube Video taped. Other artworks I have displayed were pencil illustrations and also for Black History at the Hytai Heritage Cultural Center in Durham, NC. 

Most of my inspiration comes from special moments in time whether those moments originate from photography, live events happening within my community, or fond childhood memories. When illustrating, my goal is to capture art as beautiful in design, as it is in real life.

I am a natural artist from birth with very little to no formal training. On the other hand, my education includes a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, Strayer University, Raleigh, NC, and Master's Degree in Information Technology, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCAT), Greensboro, NC.

 

My ability to design art comes from Almighty God. He has helped me develop skills over time, from childhood. ​I am grateful for a gift that allows me to create art for people to enjoy and purchase.
