What is My Creativity Blog?
My Creativity Blog is dedicated to covering the subjects of creativity, art, the artistic process and art education. I hope to share inspiration and encouragement to anyone that has an interest in becoming more creative. I also plan to share experiences that really excite and motivate the artist in me.
Who is Terry Holliday Giltner?
The content of My Creativity Blog is produced by Terry Holliday Giltner, artist and former art teacher. Some of you know her as Terry Holliday. Some of you know her as Terry Giltner. She will answer to either name.
Terry was born loving horses. She brakes for butterflies and turtles and as a little girl constantly annoyed her mother by bringing home stray animals. She desires a life of travel, but gets homesick and needs a nest to retreat to. Terry loves to be by herself, but equally loves being with her family.
She is a sucker for a man in a cowboy hat, especially her grandsons. She likes to read non-fiction or historical novels and tends to become obsessed about learning new things.Terry would love to be that really healthy in shape person but caves in to her chocolate cravings on a daily basis. She has a secret wish to…….oh, it wouldn’t be a secret if I told you!
Other creative ventures Terry is involved with are producing art, creating art lessons on videos for children, writing for Art For Homeschool, which includes sponsoring an online art show for homeschool students, and posting to My Creative Journal. Terry’s beautiful art work can be seen and purchased at her website, Watercolors By Terry and Fine Art America.
Terry’s other interests are gardening, web design, jewelry making, genealogy, yoga, and reiki.
