Terry Wilson (Pushin Studio Artist) | Bowling Green KY Artist

After 47 years as an environmental educator, Terry Wilson has retired and is devoting much of his time and energy to watercolor painting. He only discovered this interest a few years ago, after attending an informal workshop conducted by a good friend. With this new interest and his lifelong love of nature as a source of inspiration, he now is part of the Pushin Building Artists’ Studios in Bowling Green, Kentucky. In 2016, Terry won first place in the amateur watercolor division of the U.S. Celebration of the Arts, which is held each year at The Kentucky Museum. His winning painting, Mystic Waters, also qualified for the Jack Lunt Memorial Juried Art Exhibition. Since then he has won third place with other entries at the U.S. Bank show in 2017 and 2018. Having spent his professional life teaching about nature, he is now fascinated how watercolors, like water in nature, can behave in variable and random ways, and that makes it an amazing and exciting medium.
