I find that painting is a process of letting things reveal themselves. This would include, but not be limited to, lines, shapes, colors, and ideas. Most times I find myself being controlled by the picture instead of trying to control it. This is how one finds the true beauty of a painting, bringing out what each picture wants to show. Sometimes I find it and other times I don’t. I think that every artist goes through the same type of procedure in his own way.
I won’t let myself be limited by any particular type of subject matter. By doing this, I find that my search for knowledge becomes more widespread. Rather than moving down a narrow channel, I’d rather keep things as open as possible. I am subjected to a much greater wave of stimuli this way. Exploring without any boundaries helps me keep expanding and raising my level of work.
Incorporating elements from past works into new ideas is very important to me. While going forward is what we all should strive to do, we can not forget about what has brought us to our current point. By realizing and using the successes of our past we are able to accomplish even greater things in our future.

Terri Vaun Lindvall (nee Smith) is a native of Indiana who trained at Skidmore and Livingston Colleges, and Wayne State University. Though experienced with and interested in a range of creative media, her primary interest is painting. Many of her works are inspired by the natural world; some exhibit resounding spiritual themes.
Terri Lindvall teaches art at Manhattan’s Hewitt School and resides high on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan during the summer. Lindvall’s love of Michigan’s endless blue skies, abundant orchards and incomparable lake provides the inspiration for her paintings.
Lindvall has recently exhibited at The National Arts Club, NYC, Muskegon Museum of Art, Michigan, Castle Gallery, Fort Wayn e, Indiana, Ann Arbor Arts Council, Ann Arbor, Michigan and Gallery 150, Pentwater, Michigan.
