About Terry Ann
TERRY ANN KALINKO.

[0x1]I have painted my entire life. I am an arts imitates life artist.
My child art was frequently exhibited at the Rand Show. I won awards.
I matriculated at the Bok Street School of art, with distinction in watercolours painting, both figure and still life.

I spend many hours painting to fulfil my painting commitments and commissions and strive for ultimate perfection.
I paint in oil on canvas.

I was one of the finalists in [0x1]The Cricket Art Prize 2011/2012.
This was a six month tour travelling from The cricket Stadium Sydney to The Media House , Collins Street Melbourne and finally to The Bradman Museum, Cricket Hall of Fame, Bowral, Sydney [0x1] see article attached. The painting " Cricket under African Sky " was sold. Twelve paintings were selected for the cricket art calendar, mine being one of them.
This is the bit about myself that featured in the [0x1]Cricket Art Prize[0x1] catalogue.
Kalinko is an avid colourist, her use of warm and cold colours vibrate and create a joyous visual symphony, reminiscent of the French impressionists, but very original.
I use universal truths and passion to transform a blank one dimensional into a deep breathing world. I have no hidden agenda - [0x1]I love to paint[0x1].
Art reviewer Robyn Sassen said [0x1]She works with a gentle water colour touch, like sunlight against stain glass, yet intrepid and sincere in her use of oil.
[0x1]Great energy[0x1], commented Cherie Sissoos, the 2007 curator of The Johannesburg Art Gallery.
Chris Crake said " Kalinko is an extremely talented and exciting artist, whose art looks beautiful at the same time as having investment value. "
