TERRY LEE CAFFERTY

my story

 Hey there! Thanks for being interested in my story. 

I'm an artist, a wife and a mom living in Rhode Island. Besides my family life, I’m always thinking of ways to serve my clients with art and products to help you create more joy and connection in your life.

My artistic journey began 40 years ago in photography. It brought me from the beginning in darkroom film printing to photojournalism to photographing concerts & rock stars to fashion & commercial photography, all the way to  photographing video & movie stills in Los Angeles.  Eventually, I landed and found my happy place. I fell in love with documenting the unedited awe and wonder of children - who knew?  

 Rooted in black & white film, I taught myself to hand color fiber rag prints which produced a body of work celebrating the heart & soul of childhood.  These images have been featured on greeting cards with Leanin' Tree Publishing for 15 years in shops around the world.  I'm proud of this work and the nuts and bolts of what I had to learn to make it. These whimsical creations were my first choice to debut in the  Sending Love Greeting Card Collection.  

The dream of making greeting cards haunted me for a long time. Raising a family and owning a portrait business kept that daydream on the back burner. In February 2019, when we found ourselves in a worldwide pandemic and the word "lockdown" became our reality, I knew the time had come.  More than ever, people needed to connect, but couldn't get out to buy cards , so .... using my photography collection and lifelong obsession with quotes, my daydream became a reality. 

 I put my whole heart into making products to help you stay connected and perhaps elevate your relationships. Inspired by nature, ordinary moments and life's stories, I'll be adding more designs to the collection as seasons pass. I hope you'll grow along with me. My intention is to provide simply stated sentiments in cards that will save you time while helping you connect with your loved ones.  

Thank you for supporting my small business and my family. These are greeting cards and products that care about the person giving them as much as the person who's receiving them. 

You can send 100 texts and it won't mean as much as one card. 

Sending love can make someone's day!   

With every card you purchase you're part of the solution. We give back by donating a portion of our profits to:  www.jesselewischooselove.org, a nonprofit organization with a mission to create safer schools through a no-cost, lifespan social and emotional learning platform.      

A VISUAL PLACE TO BREATHE

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way ... things I had no words for."  

   {Georgia O'Keefe} 

That's it! 

Through my lens coupled with mixed media, hand coloring and  intuitive painting, I found a way to communicate my heart visually … seeing  beneath the surface of everyday ordinary moments, the natural world around us and the not so obvious.

 Inspired over the years by Georgia O'Keefe, Robert Mapplethorpe and so many others, it's inside the hidden universe of flowers, water and nature where I discovered a playground of visual surprises and abstract shapes. Learning from every surprise, I became obsessed! Playing with shadow and light, flowers, water and natural elements transformed into abstract and subtle one moment ... to exaggerated and dramatic in the next.  While becoming specific about macro lens photography, abstraction, focusing on one aspect and sometimes using blur or intentional camera movement, combined with layers of texture overlays and brushed glazes, and paint, my hope is that this imagery will take you on a visual ride ... to a place where all things are possible.     

 "You can't buy happiness, but you can buy art, and that's kinda the same thing!"
