They say you can take the girl out of Mt Druitt but you can never take Mt Druitt out of the girl. Perhaps they’re right. Resilience was easy to develop in 1960s Sydney. Under the baking sun, the violent summer storms and the frigid winters, we worked out who we were, without the input of our parents.

Terri now runs a business with her husband Matt. She has Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees in Psychology. She is a Life Coach, mentor to young artists, and a writer for local publications. Terri lives south of Sydney, on a beautiful strip of coast called the Grand Pacific Drive. She shares her home with her Husband, a lifetime collection of books, musical instrument, art and a dog named Suki. Terri has two daughters and two grandchildren. If she is not spending time with them, she is in her studio, painting, writing or sitting quietly watching the horizon as she lets her unburdened child’s mind imagine all sorts of wonderful things.
