Potteries born Terry Woolliscroft now works from his studio in the Staffordshire Moorlands.
He draws inspiration from the rather special landscape of the Potteries of North Staffordshire, and is influenced by artists Maurice Wade, Jack Clarkson, Jiri Borsky, Hashim Akib and Marie Antoniou. He also enjoys painting seascapes and still life and adapts his diverse style depending on the subject and his mood.
His work can be seen online and in local galleries. He was privileged to have a solo show at The Foxlowe Art Centre, Leek in 2018, and was selected for the Three Counties Open Art Exhibition, Burslem, in 2019. He also currently has paintings on show at The Flying Ducks Gallery, Stone, Staffordshire.
He is the creator and administrator of The Bottle Oven Art Club which established virtual exhibitions of 50 selected artworks celebrating the culture and heritage of the bottle ovens and kilns of the Potteries. More>
