Hi! I’m Terri Lemire, a fourth-year illustration student at AUArts. I moved to Calgary from Saskatoon in 2018 (on the hottest day this city has ever seen) with my kid, husband, and two fluffy old cats. My big loves include children’s books, sketchbooking, backgammon, soup and sandwich combos, pie, painting, and animation. My most prized possessions include a mounted and framed piranha named Wesley, my collection of enormous earrings, and the ever-overflowing floor-to-ceiling bookcase that lives beside my comfy couch.
I’m a painter, illustrator, and animator that enjoys working on a wide variety of subject matter, but my work always comes back around to themes of memory, childhood, and humour, with an emphasis on storytelling. Storytelling in art is important to me as a way of encouraging the audience to forge their own connections to an image. I like how that applies differently to my painting and illustration practices: in my painting practice, I feel that viewers should write their own narratives from the clues given in the image or title. This is particularly true for my landscapes, which are the product of memories and feelings, rather than any one real place or time. But in my illustrations, there’s a fine line to walk that’s quite different: lead the audience to a specific conclusion but do it without being too on the nose. I feel fortunate to have opportunities to move between these approaches and enjoy experiencing how the practices evolve around each other.
