Terry Whybrow was born in 1932 in St Pancras, London. He trained and worked as a furniture designer for many years before moving to Cornwall in 1980 and taking up painting full-time. Today he lives and paints right in the heart of St Ives. Upon moving to Cornwall Terry was heavily influenced by the St Ives abstract movement of the mid-twentieth century.
Reversing the trend of many artists, the shapes and forms of his early work gradually developed into the fruit and bowls of the still-lives for which he has become well-known, whilst always retaining a strong sense of composition and structure from his design background. His works have a serene and tranquil nature that belies Terry’s meticulous approach to painting and framing.
