"It is my hope and intention above all, that my art has a positive and lasting effect on the viewer. Whether we lose ourselves in the endless horizons of a landscape or in an intimate view of the earth beneath our feet, there is an 'infinity' for an artist to explore and discover, no matter what the subject."

Koi are widely viewed as symbols of luck, courage and love. For artist Terry Gilecki, they are the foundation for his artistic voice, inspired by the serene beauty of these majestic fish.



“Since I paint primarily from imagination, I enjoy a wide creative freedom that allows me to blend the lines between reality and the surreal. Many of the techniques and methods I have had to master as an artist over my career is now a part of the concoction that is my art today. The Koi, are but one ingredient in the recipe but they are essential, bringing life, color and the sense of calm and serenity into my art. It is what I was first compelled to capture and I was thankful that I was able to carry the effect onto my canvas, allowing anyone to have a piece of paradise in their home.”
