ABOUT

Teri Darnell 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 few people explore. Through inspiration she derives from casual encounters, she expresses an inward sensitivity to the lives of others. Her use of evocative imagery enables viewers to engage in worlds that stretch their imagination.

Teri serves on the Board of Directors of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. She served six years in the United States Air Force, notably in Berlin during the Cold War. In 2015, she retired after twenty-five years of service with a Fortune 50 company as a Multi-Media Development Manager to pursue her passion in photography.
