About the Artist

Hello! Welcome to T M Art Blog.

My name is Terrilynne M. I’m twenty-three years old. I’m from Chestermere, Alberta originally from Calgary.  I’m so glad to be back in Alberta after living away in Goosebay, NL for a year and Rankin Inlet, Nunavut for three years. I love Art, fashion, and music (I’m a huge Weezer fan btw!).

This page is still under construction so please check back soon.

  1. You have such an opportunity to draw what you experience in the North. I’d love to see what you could draw of the people around you, the way people need to wrap up warmly in winter that is unique. You’ve got good drawing skills. Please let us see what the world around you is like for those of us that will never travel there.
    I’m also an artist. You can look at some of my work on artiseternal.wordpress.com

  3. lookingforbeauty,

    Thank you for your comment.

    I totally agree, I should put up more drawings of the life up here in the North.

    I don’t know why I haven’t been doing that, I guess I’ve just been so focused on my job and drawing other things, that I haven’t been drawing what’s around me. Like you said, I should take this opportunity to draw my experience here in the North since so many other people never get the chance to live up here.

    Again, thank you.

  4. Artisticked,

    Thank you.

    I try my best to draw everyday, even just for a few minutes, no matter what the subject is.

    I believe that Practice is the best medicine. =)

  5. Wow, your stuff is really cool. I love the snow. I get plenty of it here in Ohio during the Winter, but not enough for me.

    I love art, I’m 17, but still struggling to find my artistic voice. Things just don’t come out the way I want them too. You’ve given me the inspiration to keep trying and never give up. Thank you. :3 I can’t wait to see what you do with the new Copics, I want to get some of my own, as next year I’m hoping I get into the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for Fashion Design.

  6. Hey CrazyIvan,

    Thanks for passing by my blog.

    I’m so happy that I was able to inspire you in some ways.

    Sometimes things don’t come out the way I want them too either. Like, my copic drawing. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. But I’ll keep trying till I get it right.

    It just takes time and practice. Sooner or later you’ll find your own unique style and artistic voice.

    Good luck with your future endeavor.

  7. Woah. I just moved to Rankin Inlet! And I just graduated from art school. Weird to randomly stumble across someone in Rankin on the internet. I don’t have many photos of new art up, but I do have an old deviantart site that I haven’t updated in maybe 4 years. Half of it’s junk from highschool that I’m slightly embarrassed by. Anyways, good luck with your work, and if you ever want to art chat, drop me a line.


  8. Hello Maura,

    Thank you for your comment. I’m sorry that I was not able to reply to you sooner.

    I hope that you’re enjoying Rankin Inlet. I bet it’s getting cold there now. Winter is soon to come!

    Anyways, thanks for passing by… hopefully see more current art work from you on your deviantart site.

  9. Hi,
    My name is Mike. I owe a great deal of thanks to you for a sketch of yours. I spent some time with a few various artists doing sketches for me and it ended up being your tiger lily that I used for my tattoo. It ended up turning out really well and I didn’t want you to go without the credit you deserved. I have a couple pictures of it if you were at all interested in seeing what your work became. I can email you a copy if you want.
    Let me know and thanks again

  10. Hey Mike,

    WOW! No way! That’s so cool! I never thought any of my drawings would become a tattoo. I’m really excited to see how the tattoo turned out. I will email you with my email address.

  11. Hi,
    My name is Lola and I live in Calgary. I have a great love for designing and i am currently taking a figure drawing class at ACAD but I wanted to know where you learnt to draw and what advice you have for someone starting out.

  12. Hi Lola,

    It’s nice to see another artist from Calgary. =)

    To answer your question, I actually learn to draw on my own. I started seriously drawing at the age of eight. I’ve never taken any art courses to learn to draw other than in school for easy credit. haha. But those never really helped me out in any way. However, the only time I’ve been in a REAL art course was when I was accepted in Academy of Arts University in San Francisco when I was living in Goosebay about 4 years ago. It was an Online degree (so all my courses was done on the computer and I had to learn a lot of things on my own) in Visual Merchandising in the Fashion Department and that introduced me to a whole new level of drawing which was Fashion Illustration. Unfortunately I only stayed with AAU for less than a year because my family and I had to move to Nunavut at the time and I was working and helping out with the business. But now my family and I are back home in Alberta (Chestermere) after three years being away. Since coming back I’ve been drawing a lot more and just recently started teaching myself how to use Adobe Illustrator. It’s not as easy as picking up a paint brush and painting on a canvas it’s pretty complex. But I think after a while it will get easy.

    My advice to you is to always practice. I know that sounds silly but it’s true. Once you keep drawing and drawing you will begin to learn to “see” and become better. I still have drawings from when I was twelve when I first started drawing portraits and I would get pictures from the fashion magazine and draw from them. They weren’t really that great (but at that time I thought they were REALLY great!) but when I compare them to my Portrait drawings now I can see how much I improved. That’s why keep practicing and keep doing what you are doing by taking art classes. Those will greatly improve your technique and help you find your own creative style. Also keep a sketch book at hand, draw the people around you, grab a fashion magazine and draw the model in it and put your own flare to it. Look at other artist work and learn from their technique. You can also read up on Art books for reference. But overall it’s all about practice and commitment.

    I hope this helped you in some way and if you have any more questions for me I’ll be glad to answer them for you.

    • Hi Lena,

      Thank you for your comment. I bought mine from Baby Face in Dragon City. haha. You have to ask the guy that own the place for it, for some reason he doesn’t have it on his shelves. When I bought mine I asked him if he had it in stock and he has a box full of it. haha. He sold it to me for 13 bucks which is a pretty good price. I was actually going to review that product on my beauty blog, you can check it out >here<. You can also give the owner of Baby Face a call and find out if he still has some in stock. =)
