Terri Fidelak was raised in Fairlight, Saskatchewan, where she spent her childhood rumbling around in grain trucks and deciphering the whispers of northern lights.
After completing a BA in English Literature and a BFA in printmaking at the University of Regina, she moved to Quebec and then to Japan. There she taught ESL, contributed to the local art scene, and travelled abundantly until the prairies called her back. Terri is a full-time studio artist in Regina and was short-listed for the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor's Emerging Artist Award in 2013. She has participated in various artist residencies, including the Legislative Building's Centennial Anniversary project. Presently, she is a participant in CARFAC's Mentorship Program with mentor Tamara Rusnak. Terri's drawings and sculptural installations are a celebration of prairie, an exploration of origins, and a search for wonder in every moment.
