Carol Terry says she’s been painting for more than 30 years.

The Greenup, Kentucky, artist’s work is the subject of a new show on display at the Briggs Lawrence Public Library in Ironton.

Working in oils and usually on 16 by 20 inch canvases, Terry’s work is done in a representational style and features a warm subject matter.

“It’s usually landscapes,” she said. “I’ve done a few portraits and some animals.”

A hairdresser for 40 years, Terry said she got into to painting after taking several classes. Her home’s kitchen doubles as her painting studio. She said a typical piece takes her about a month or so to create.

“I really enjoy doing it,” she said.

She’s received several awards for her work, which has been on display at Morehead, Grayson and Greenbo Lake and she’s a member of the Tri-State Art Association.

The exhibit is set to run through April 30.
