Biography

Terri Jo Frew is a practicing contemporary artist and Lecturer with the Visual & Performing Arts Department at Michigan Technological University, Houghton. Originally from Canada, she holds an MFA degree from Concordia University (Montréal), and exhibits her art internationally. Always working conceptually, her favorite methods of expression include (but aren’t limited to) embroidery and drawing.

 

Through her art, Terri is interested in contributing to the contemporary dialogue concerned with breaking down boundaries between art and craft. By utilizing materials and processes from Fiber Arts (textiles) and Illustration- media commonly considered to be from the realm of craft- in concert with conceptual content, she hopes to confront and challenge antiquated notions of art media hierarchy.
