About the Artist
Terry Daulton’s pastel paintings reflect her deep ties to the landscape and her background as a biologist and environmental educator. Her work as a field biologist in the northwoods provides inspiration for her artwork. Daulton states, “For me painting is both personal and a teaching tool. I hope that I can help others to develop a closer relationship to the natural world and to discover their own creative energies.” Terry’s work on art/science collaborations includes interpretive exhibits, nature trail brochures, and creation and coordination of the travelling exhibitions “Paradise Lost: Climate Change in the Northwoods” and “Drawing Water: Artists and Scientists Explore Northern Lakes”. She shows her work at a number of northwoods galleries and can be contacted email@example.com.
Penokee Trout – This painting represents the beauty of the small remote trout streams in the Penokees.
Sams’ Salvage – At Sam’s Salvage, mountains of metal are stockpiled for shipment to Green Bay, and on to China.
Scrap iron prices in 2011 were $200/ton, compared to $32/ton in 1964. Ironically Sam’s is located on the South
Davis Mine Site, which at peak employed 1500 workers. I wanted to paint these men as heroes, whose work reduces
the need for new mines, saving resources for future generations.
Iron in the Hills – The man in this painting is powerful, standing in front of the Penokee Range with his miner’s
pick. But his emotions are undecided, how does he feel about the Penokee Hills and mining?
Mind Doors and Door to My Heart– I wanted to compare the padlocked door on one of the Montreal Mine buildings, with what must have once been a beautiful door on a building in Pence. Looking at the broken frosted glass window, I wonder who treasured the door and how it came to be abandoned.
