Marilyn, an award-winning artist, enjoys photographing unusual and historic locations and later bringing them to life on canvas.
Terry’s work includes scenes of the sea, marshes, Florida’s state parks and wildlife along the banks of the St. Johns River. Her art also includes scenes which she and her husband, Lindsay, have photographed on their numerous trips to the Caribbean.
