Terry Watkinson was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario. After high school, he was accepted into the University of Toronto to study architecture. After completing two years, he joined the rock band Max Webster with Kim Mitchell. For the next exciting eight years, he toured with the band throughout North America and Europe playing to sold out audiences, in venues like the iconic Maple Leaf Gardens and recording six gold and platinum records. When the band broke up, Terry returned to the University of Toronto and succeeded in achieving the challenging B. Sc. in Medical Illustration. He went on to teach surgical illustration and perspective for the university’s Biomedical Communications program. His illustrations are featured in many medical textbooks and journals. Today this multi-talented artist creates a brilliant sense of light, depth and emotion in his spectacular wilderness scenes. Terry’s paintings incorporate many of his life experiences; from his Thunder Bay childhood can be seen his bond with the Canadian north; and from his music comes rhythm, bold gesture, and a sense of lively communication.
