If you enjoy obvious jokes about the way people interact with ubiquitous technological features, you'll love sugarselfie.us, a new website that fights bad taste with worse.

Story
Introduction

A san Francisco Bay Area transplant that has called Los Angeles home since 

1980. 


Under the influence of a 1960s, latch-key kid youth, the musings of stephen King , Hunter S. Thompson, Slavoj Zizek, Noam chompsky, Karen Armstong, Alan Watts; Warhol, Lichtenstein, Speed Racer, Television Commercials, Consumer Product Marketing, and Mad Magazine. 


The circumstances of a working class youth did not provide the conventional 

means to an art education or experience. Because of this, she did not attend art 

school, or college. This, however, did not stop Terri from absorbing and applying what has been learned via vocation or self exploration to creative communications endeavors. 


Introduced to the Apple Macintosh in 1987 as a design and publishing tool, a love affair with digital tools began. 


Her approach tends to be a whole-istic zen, combining aspects of typography, 

illustration, and graphic design along with more conventional aspects of image 

creation, that almost always results in a product that is visually engaging, saying as much as possible with, at times, very little. 


Philosophically speaking, Terri does not look at digital art as a movement. And therefore, the work you see is sometimes not overtly digital, often intentionally rough around the edges, and even intentionally flawed. This intention is to remind the viewer that human hands were on the project. 


“Like advertising, it’s about formulating the right message, not necessarily  

baffling the audience with technical proficiency and other high tech circus tricks.” 


Between the years 1999 and 2001 Terri worked with echo Park Arts and Festival, working her way up from volunteer status to co-Director of the organization. This experience brought to life the business of art.  


Facing the dilemma of under-employment and ageism in commerical arts, she has shifted her focus into investing more of her energy and creative resources into a fine arts career. 


She currently resides somewhere in North East Sector of Los Angeles with her husband, five cats and one large and noisy macaw.
