Terri Maxfield Lipp is an artist who works in a variety of media, though her focus is mainly on painting and photography. Resistant to being defined by any one particular style, her body of work is a visual diary that reflects her personal exploration of creativity, as a concept and way of life.
Her main inspiration draws from the art movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, primarily Dadaism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Recent artistic movements such as Fluxus, Neo-Expressionism, Pop-Surrealism, and Visionary also influence her thinking and creative process.
Currently living in Italy, she has studied traditional Flemish and Florentine Renaissance oil painting techniques under the tutelage of the acclaimed Italian maestro Adriano Fida, and continues her studies of painting and digital design with the gifted Italian artist Bianca Camilla Gambrioli. These studies have given her recent work the added influence of more classical traditions and motifs, as filtered through her personal interpretation.
She has also studied photography and the creative process with internationally renown photographer Robin Davis, in Italy as well as the south of France.
Her work is sold and exhibited internationally.
Her home and studio are currently located in Rome, Italy.
