Terenia Butler

Terenia Butler was born and educated in Ireland, growing up in a small town on the estuary of the Blackwater River and Atlantic Ocean. She took her Fine Arts degree at the Cork School of Art and then went into a career in design. In 1969, she was invited to South Africa to design for C.M.C.Carpets Company situated in Durban. In the mid 70s her husband was transferred to Japan and she spent the next few years in Tokyo. This time spent in the East had an enormous impact on her artistic development and still continues to influence her perception and painting. Once back in South Africa she initially worked on pen and ink drawings and watercolours before changing to acrylic on canvas, which is currently her preferred medium. Over the past few years, her passion has been the sea, painting the coastline from Mozambique to Paternoster. Terenia gains her inspiration from the infinite horizons of the Natal coast, the powerful storms along the Wild Coast and the sense of peace when walking the silver beach at Morgan’s Bay where the delicate barely noticeable colour gradients blur the transition between water and land. The grace of old fishing boats in places like Keurbooms and Knysna and intense colours along the Cape and West Coast are sources of constant delight and stimulation. She finds the quality of light dancing over water while walking along the shorelines of our beautiful country a never-ending source of inspiration and restoration.
