Grande Prairie, Alberta
Terry Buchanan grew up with a love and appreciation of nature and animals. Art has always been a deeply spiritual and therapeutic freedom of expression for her.
After living in various parts of Alberta, B.C. and New Zealand, Terry is happy to finally come home to the Peace Country.
Studying animal spirit guides lead to the creation of the paintings, “Strength in Totems” and “Totem Tale.” Terry felt drawn to certain animals and their totems.

Butterfly: personal transformation
