We’re delighted to introduce a collection of wonderfully whimsical wall and mini calendars by a new member of our family of contributing artists. Terry Runyan combines cheerful colors, quirky shapes, and lively patterns to create her playful designs. These joyful illustrations and expressive animal portraits are a blend of retro and contemporary styles, elegance, and humor.
Terry Runyan is a visual artist and creativity coach who lives in Kansas City, Missouri. She loves all animals, and her artwork always includes a gathering of furry, feathery, and fishy friends. She works in a variety of media, including paint, collage, drawing, digital, and video.
After a long career as an in-house illustrator for Hallmark, Runyan now runs her own business, creating art and videos, presenting webinars, and leading classes to help others explore their creativity. She sees art as a way of connecting and communicating with others. Inspired by everything she sees, particularly her cats, Runyan follows that inspiration and finds that both her art and her life are always full of surprises.
