Award winning painter, Potteries born Terry Woolliscroft, enjoyed a career in the ceramics industry. He now paints in his studio in the Staffordshire Moorlands and has collaborated with the design of fine bone china mugs.
He paints in acrylics and oils, and enjoys painting landscapes, seascapes and still life. His paintings have found new homes here in the UK and as far afield as Japan, New Zealand, Arizona and Washington.
He draws inspiration from the rather special landscape of the north Staffordshire Potteries, and is influenced by Stoke artists Maurice Wade, Jack Clarkson, and Reginald G Haggar. He loves the work of Jiri Borsky, Rob Pointon and Ian Pearsall. More widely he loves the style and teaching of Hashim Akib and Marie Antoniou.
His work can be seen online, in his Etsy shop, and occasionally in local galleries.
