Thank you for visiting my gallery.  I am a contemporary and abstract artist living in southern California.  My work can be seen in galleries in Laguna Beach, CA, Dana Point, CA, and La Jolla, CA.

I love saturated colors & textures that make you want to touch and explore what is there.  Much of my work has an Asian influence and feel.  I paint for my soul and to share my work with others.

Terri Deskins Contemporary & Abstract Artist - Studio Shot

Customer Comments:

Terri's artwork was exactly what we wanted for our higher-end, mid century modern home. Gorgeous work. Seeing her paintings in photos is one thing, but actually looking at them in person blows you away. Her attention to detail, customer service, speed of response in communication and the use of the highest quality packing materials to ensure safe shipping and delivery place this artist well above and beyond any I've worked with previously.       

Brian L. - Richland, WA

We discovered Terri Deskins art in Laguna Beach in Dec. 2014 and purchased her piece called Rai from the Orange County Creatives. While visiting Laguna Beach Nov. 2015 we were fortunate to visit Terri in her new studio and purchase one of her latest pieces Mystic River. Terri is a warm, gracious and a lovely woman as well as being a great artist! She packages and ships her art work with perfection. We look forward to adding at least another one of her pieces in our home in the future.

Terri sent out an email of her latest canvas artwork and when I saw it I had a feeling it would be perfect for one of my clients. After contacting Terri by phone to confirm the artwork was still available, I put her in touch with my client. Terri responded very quickly and drove to my client's home to show her the pieces. They were perfect for the spot! Terri even hung the artwork for my client. Thank you Terri!

I am beyond pleased with my new piece from Terri's collection. Her style, personality and passion are uniquely reflected in her artwork which cause my guests to notice, pause and ponder while they consume the story she tells in her painting. It's a piece I will treasure forever. Terri's business savvy also makes the entire acquisition process simple and painless. Looking forward to my next purchase!    

Mary V. - Tualatin, OR

We bought a beautiful red series of paintings from Terri. It is beautiful. The colors are a vivid, darker red. The three together make a bold statement in our modern sun room. With a fluffy white rug and navy linen couch, the red provides a splash of color. 

The art came beautifully wrapped with a personal note!  I highly recommend Terri.

We found Terri to be insightful, creative, and willing to listen to our ideas of what we were envisioning for our project theme. She does her homework for her creations, and has a purpose and meaning in each of the pieces she shows us.
