ABOUT


Teri Darnell (born in Cleveland, Ohio) is an artist who is passionate about people being able to live with who they are inside. She uses her camera to connect to places that few people explore. Through the inspiration she derives from casual encounters, she expresses an inward sensitivity to the lives of others who many people do not want to understand. Her use of vibrant colors and evocative imagery enables viewers to engage peacefully in worlds that might otherwise make them uncomfortable.
