Terrie Bennett is a second generation sculptor & has been sculpting professionally for
over three decades. At a very young age she started working in the bronze foundry
business with her father and uncle, sculptor’s Tom and Bob Bennett, known throughout
the world as Bennett Sculpture. As her father’s apprentice she studied composition,
form and the technique of creating three dimensional sketches in wire, which has also
led to her being quite accomplished at welding one of a kind wire sculptures, which is
where her father and uncle started their artistic journey.
In her early twenties Terrie found herself called towards her own artistic voice as she
was visited by whales & dolphins in her dream state. As her relationship with cetaceans
grew in her inner realms she felt it a mission to bring more conscious awareness to them
& their environment. So it was quite natural for her to start sculpting them. She was one
of the first sculptors to focus primarily on marine mammals in the early 1980’s, quickly
establishing herself as one of the top marine artists in Hawaii and the western united
states. She feels her artistic & activist calling are as different threads of the same
tapestry that are interconnected As an environmental activist , this was a natural fit and
led to her involvement & contribution to many organizations & movements over the
years. As an artist, she is called to bring more conscious awareness to the
interconnection of all life forms, frequencies & sacred geometry that is relevant to our
place in the world & the cosmos.
“My inspiration comes from my connection to nature & the subtle ways life dances in
the space between form & spirit”.
